I feel a bit guilty passing along too much by a single artist for copyright reasons, but I want to post more by the Avett Brothers, who I'm listening to constantly in the past couple of weeks. This album is a bit different from The Gleam, which I posted earlier. It's more upbeat and bluegrass/country influenced, but it still has a number of Gleam-esque ballads on it, lovelorn or otherwise. My favorite songs so far are "Love Like the Movies" "Sorry Man" "Pretty Girl from Locust"(!) "My Song to Jenny" (!) "The D Bag Rag" and "Smoke in Our Lights" (!).
Also, I've been listening to their newest album "Emotionalism." I've gotta say I don't think it's as good as some of their previous albums and a lot of people have raved about it, which confuses me. It's still worth a listen though, there are a few great songs on there. Here is Carolina Jubilee
