We come back a little bit country!

The Avett Brothers are from North Carolina and on the forefront of the alternative Country movement.

Their songs are deep-rooted in folk, pop and soul - all with a Southern sensibility.

The delicious Shame is dipped in twang and beautiful harmonies. Such a pretty love song!

    Seriously now Perez. You went to Austin. For a few days. Austin is hardly country (or not enough that it'd cling). Additionally, it is so so sad that sxsw has become what it has. Sure, it's great for our local economy, but it's terrible for our morale. Alas.

    GOOD GRIEF! If I wanted to hear a music review from a REAL CRITIC, I would go to a MUSIC REVIEW site! Stick to what you know… uneducated grammar and copying from other gossip sites!

    55

    dear perez…
    the knitters, elvis costello, uncle tupelo, whiskeytown, g.o.b. iron, just to name a few…all of whom are a hell of a lot more important then the avett brothers, at least concerning alt. country.

    Congrats on discovering what many Southerners already know….Avett Brothers are awesome!! Thanks for turning on more people to their beautiful sound. I hope they get all the recognition they deserve because they are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

  62. Sara says – reply to this


    62

    It warms my heart to know that you've discovered the Avett Bros. and thought it would be a good idea to give them some (much deserved!) publicity! Right on. :)

  63. Stephanie says – reply to this


    63

    First of all…. they're not in the forefront… Old 97s have been around for years.

  64. southern gal says – reply to this

    very impressed w/ your pick. seen them twice and they are FAB-U-LOUS and quite sexy when they sweat, stomp their feet, and play the banjo.

  65. Lacy says – reply to this


    65

    Yay! I'm so glad the Avett Brothers are starting to spread to larger audiences. They are an incredible band and as awesome as their cds are, they don't even begin to do them justice! They are by far the best LIVE act I've ever seen! Do yourselves a favor and hit them up in concert! You won't regret it!

  68. Sara says – reply to this


    68

    I second the Langhorne Slim suggestion–they're a trio from NYC & they're amazing. Also, you should check out the everybodyfields!!! They're on the same label as The Avett Bros. (Ramseur).

  69. sara says – reply to this


    69

    Thank you sooo much for showing the avett's some love on your page! I live in NC and have been following them for some time. I am so glad to see that people are catching on to their inspiring music!

    The Avett Brothers are an amazing group of guys! They are so talented, but humble and polite at the same time. Any of their albums would make a great addition to your collection. I have been following these boys since they were playing for free back in '02. They have come a long way and will probably go much further! Please check them out! They will be here in Cali this month!!

    I love, love this band! Almost to a point where it's unhealthy. Their live shows are so amazing. If you get the chance, go see them. After that there's no turning back. You're hooked.

    87

    The Avett Brothers are awesome. I like calling them "Grunge Grass". It's a little closer to how I picture them. Definitely more rooted in bluegrass than country.

    Avett Brothers are a great NC band–if you like them, you should listen to Chatham County Line–another one of our best!
