Hello, i'm trying to sort folders containing audio files by group name. This is what the folders look like now in their current sorted arrangement:

Mumford and Sons
The Killers

... Is there someway to move "The Killers" folder up alphabetically? It seems that the finder doesn't ignore the "The" preceding the band name like iTunes does.

Help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Easy way: rename the folder to "Killers" or "Killers, The".

Harder: Tell us how the folders are displayed (Icon View, List View, etc.) and there are other ways, perhaps.
