In May of 2010, a few of us here at RadioBDC were lucky enough to see Mumford & Sons perform an acoustic set in front of about 60 people at the Ames Hotel in Boston. This summer, Paul Driscoll saw the band play to thousands on a hillside in Portland, Maine. Clearly, this is a band poised for big things.

But you don't know how big.

I caught their set at the Providence Performing Arts Center and I can say without hesitation that Mumford & Sons are, quite simply, the greatest band around right now. Their talent and heart are unparalleled. Coldplay, who were in Boston last week and are regarded by many as the "world's biggest band," paled in comparison.

Crazy talk, right? You'll see. Mark my words: Mumford & Sons will sell out the Garden someday soon. In the meantime, watch "I Will Wait," the clip from the first single from 'Babel,' out today. And peep some pics from their show in Providence. And be sure to listen to RadioBDC to hear more tracks from 'Babel.'

Highlight of the night: "Timshel" performed truly acoustically. No mics. Moved to tears.
