Most of the press surrounding Mumford & Sons's new record has been about the band progressing from their traditional acoustic arrangements to a more electric sound.
And while it wasn't exactly Dylan plugging in at Newport, the band did use their appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend to show off some of that electricity.

If Mumford & Sons' brand of homespun earnestness is too much for you, you're not alone: It's apparently too much for the band, who parodied themselves (with a little help from professionals) in the new video for "Hopeless Wanderer," which was totally shot at Schrute Farms.
Read on for other wonderfully random videos and more from this week:

At first glance it looks like just another Mumford & Sons video – outdoor setting, blinding sunlight, rustic barn, earnest expressions and enthusiastic musicianship – but as you get a couple of seconds into the band's new video, "Hopeless Wanderer," you realize that's not actually the English quartet at all.
Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms, Jason Bateman and Will Forte have stepped into the band's shoes and the result is comedy gold. There is so much to enjoy here: Forte's beard, Bateman's lip-syncing, Sudeikis' "intimate" singing technique – the video is definitely worth watching more than once.
It also shows just how down-to-earth Marcus Mumford and his pals are, as not every group would be willing to poke fun at themselves like this.

You just can't keep a good folk rocker down.
Mumford & Sons's bassist Ted Dwane returned to the stage in Somerset, England, Sunday night, for the first time since being hospitalized in early June for emergency surgery to remove a blood clot on the surface of his brain.
Before taking the stage Sunday, Dwane told the BBC that providing the final performance at this year's Glastonbury music festival had been dominating his thoughts.
"The last few weeks have been a bit weird and we had to cancel a couple of shows at the end of our last U.S. tour," he said backstage.

A blood clot on the brain of Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane has forced the band to postpone three shows as his bandmates and scores of fans send him healing thoughts.
"Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment," reads a statement posted on the band's official website Tuesday.
"The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery."
The health scare has forced the band to postpone three concert dates this week, in Dallas, The Woodlands, Texas, and New Orleans, according to the site, which adds, "we have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour."
