If Miley Cyrus Joined Mumford & Sons

Do you like the song “Wrecking Ball,” but wish it had more banjo? Enjoy the folk-rock stylings of Mumford & Sons, but wish they were led by a provocative young vocalist who sticks out her tongue a lot?

Probably not. But even if you fit neither description, you still might enjoy the work of Isosine, a “mashup producer and faceless figure from nowhere in particular,” whose blend of Miley’s No. 1 hit and the debut single by Mumford & Sons, “Little Lion Man,” is impressively seamless.
