The Fabulous Avett Brothers


If there are rockstars disguised as folk musicians, they undoubtedly be the Avett Brothers. You wouldn't know it, listening to The Second Gleam, but you'd know it if you ever saw them live. Beards? Check. Youthful exuberance? Check. Sibling frontmen? Check check. Front-row-fist-pumps-and-full-voiced-sing-alongs? Checkity check.

Folk-punk?

This is Townes VanZandt on speed. The Beatles high on bluegrass. When Iron gets piss-drunk on Wine. This is foot-stomping falling in love, right here.

Exhibit A:


Listen:
St. Joseph's
Tear Down the House
[from The Second Gleam|buy]
Will You Return?
[from Emotionalism|buy]
