Last year Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes and Old Crow Medicine Show embarked on a very different tour of the US. The Railroad Revival Tour saw the three bands jump on a train made up of 15 vintage railcars and travel 2,477 miles from Oakland to New Orleans, playing gigs along the side of the railway tracks.

The entire tour was captured by renowned documentarian Emmett Malloy and the result is the fantastic Big Easy Express which debuted at SXSW last year.

Big Easy Express will finally been given an Australian release on DVD and Blu-Ray DVD and Blu-Ray on the 27th of July through Rocket Distribution. Check out the trailer for Big Easy Express below:

While I sometimes wished to get to know the band members a bit better and hear about their thoughts, I appreciate at the same time that the live songs were not annoyingly interrupted by interviews, as happens so often in musical documentaries.
    I wrote a long review after watching it:
