Just in case you were not aware, tomorrow the newest Avett Brothers album hits the shelves (and the iTunes shelves…). It has been streaming on NPR for the last week or so. But if you still haven’t heard it, check out a video of the first track on the album, “The Carpenter”, below. And if you STILL aren’t convinced, check out my short review on Christ and Pop Culture that will go up tomorrow morning.
Through the few listens that I have had, I have been impressed with the lyrical consistency and diverse sound of the new album. It may be no Mignonette, or it could be… who knows, but it still is looking like it may be my favorite album of the year to date.
