"Roll Away" with Mumford and Sons

Posted by on Wed, January 26th, 2011 at 4:00 pm

Folk music with fire and soul and a touch of alternative, nicely laced within the banjo and choral arrangements, that is what Mumford and Sons offers their listeners. Reaching out with their arms wide open and more love stories to write, each of their songs digs deep into the insecurities of life and scoffs at it just as any good friend should. These four englishmen are nominated for two Grammy’s, Best New Artist and Best Rock Song, for “Little Lion Man.” This group’s brand of bluegrass, folk music has joined the likes of rock songs, how? Well, that’s because this quartet found a cure for the beaten spirit. Give them a listen. You can now download “Roll Away Your Stone” from the Swag Store for 199 SB, or you can get their entire album, Sigh No More, from iTunes for just $9.99. Don’t forget, when using Shop & Earn, you earn 2 SB for every dollar spent with iTunes.

Happy Searching!

So this video is about a year old, but I just recently fell upon it again. This 4-year-old boy’s insane ukulele talent mixed with the gibberish and adorable facial expressions easily makes this videos one of my favorites! I think we’ve found ourselves the next Jason Mraz – just give him a few more years! […]

Hey guys, this is Hal from Team Swagbucks, your resident Phildelphian. Someone on our Facebook wall recently reminded me that the Wing Bowl is coming up, and while it doesn’t do much to fight our city’s sometimes less-than-stellar reputation, it is a Philadelphia institution.

Blake Gets Nasty With It

Posted by on Wed, January 26th, 2011 at 8:00 am

TSG hasn’t talked a lot about the NBA season so far, but obviously the Lake Show is NOT disappointing (2nd best record in the Western Conference is not too shabby). However, it may just be one of the Clippers making the most noise nowadays – Blake Griffin is tearing the league up with his explosive […]
