THE AVETT BROTHERS have tapped into the KICK DRUM of my HEART


there’s nothing like finding gold within the rocks hard and cold

♫ The Avett Brothers – Kick Drum Heart

Ok, so I’m super late to The Avett Brothers. The North Carolina trio (only 2 of which are Avetts) have a million albums out already but I only heard them recently. It was my mother on the phone, she was telling me to find a radio to hear this song about Brooklyn (where I used to live). Needless to say, I wasn’t near a radio at the time turns out it was “I And Love And You,” (below) the first single from the album of the same name. Although beautiful, its a little too melancholy for me and I wasn’t sold right off the bat. After hearing it’s praises sung elsewhere, I eventually picked up the album and was pleasantly surprised to hear that these guys can jam when they want to. “Kick Drum Heart” (above) is one of the albums energetic highlights as it thumps out it’s tale of dizzy love and frigid weather. The album has a weight that can feel alternately sad and joyous, and is definitely growing on me. The vocals are beautiful and the instruments all play perfectly together. I just wish that album art wasn’t such a downer.

    Sorry to any North Carolinians offended by my mistake or any South Carolinians offended by nick's comment. Apologies all around!
