|My first recommendation would be to stop listening to Mumford & Sons, because they're dreadful :p .
Frightened Rabbit - The Midnight Organ Fight.
Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago.
King Creosite & Jon Hopkins - Diamond Mine.
The Decemberists - The King Is Dead.
Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea.
Elliott Smith - Either/Or.
Frank Turner - Love, Ire & Song.
The Tallest Man On Earth - The Wild Hunt.
Laura Marling - A Creature I Don't Know.
Also although they're not really a folk band I'd recommend listening to R.E.M. if you haven't already. Pretty much everything they did up until the mid-nineties is worth having, but Automatic For The People is the place to start - that or Out Of Time which is their folkiest album.|
|You only need one album:|
The River Empires - The River Empires (Epilogue)
|Sufjan Stevens- Michigan|
Nick Drake- Pink Moon
|Ugh, editing fucked my comment up. Geng's are good rec's also.|
|Laura Marling - A Creature I Don't Know |
Buries everything on your list.
|ive listened to Laura Marling, she's a really good artist|
|what ali said + pink moon|
|gregory alan isakov - this empty northern hemisphere|
|Dan mangan - Nice, Nice, Very nice.|
Well >_> all his albums. But that is the best.
