Music Monday | The Avett Brothers

I’ve been a little out of the loop when it comes to The Avett Brothers, an indie-folk-country group from North Carolina.  Their latest album, The Carpenter, was released on September 11.  Here they are, performing one of their new singles Live and Die (listen to more of their music here).  *my embedded post doesn’t seem to work, but if you click to watch it directly on YouTube, it will take you to the video

The love is for a band. The songs are honest: just chords with real voices singing real melodies. But, the heart and the energy with which they are sung, is really why people are talking, and why so many sing along. They are a reality in a world of entertainment built with smoke and mirrors, and when they play, the common man can break the mirrors and blow the smoke away, so that all that’s left behind is the unwavering beauty of the songs.
