There's a New Avett Brothers Song

Posted By on Fri, Jun 29, 2012 at 2:30 PM

You can't really judge an album by the first single - well, maybe a little bit - but theoretically, a record label throws a band's most commercial song out there ahead of the album, hoping to make an impression on whatever audience is out there still actually buying things.

So, I'm trying not to panic about "Live and Die," from the new Avett Brothers album, The Carpenter, coming out on September 11th. It's a nice enough song, I guess, more along the lines of their last album than the more bluegrass-influenced stuff that made me like the band in the first place. First, they skip over Tucson on their last tour - to play MESA - and now they just sound more and more like Mumford and Sons and that's making me sad.
