And speaking of great songs

 I love the three Avett Brothers albums which now grace my collection. ("The Gleam", "The Second Gleam", "I and Love and You") Sometimes you buy an album and find you don't like anything but the song that made you want to buy it. Sometimes you like most of the songs but have to skip a couple each time you listen the album. Not so with the Avetts. These guys hit it out of the park on every single song on these three albums.  I can hardly wait to get the rest of their music.

Their talents don't stop at beautiful melodies and brilliant lyrics. Go here for a short article about Scott Avett's other talents and influences.


  1. 10,000 words: great song. Can't help loving the jug of 'Roundup' in the corner. Classic.

  2. Great song, great video.

    "Ain't it like most people? I'm no different, we love to talk on things we don't know about."

    Kind of sums up how I feel about blogging some days....

  3. I'm something of a fan myself. Great picks- Bella Donna in particular. More people should know about these guys.

  4. I am late to the Avett party myself. I had never heard of them until Mr. Beazly, flipping through the channels on the night of the Grammies, had his attention caught by Mumford and Sons, which in turn caused him to stick around for the Avetts. So I guess I can thank Husband and Mumford and Sons that I know about them at all. I will soon be purchasing the rest of their albums.
