    Love the Avert Brothers. I came in late of them---only first heard them when they did Austin City Limits (the same way I found Amos Lee) but have made up for lost time. They make complicated songs sound deceptively simple, and I can identify with their lyrics.

    "Kick Drum Heart" is my ringtone.

    I second all the Band of Horses post. Now is a great time to be introduced to them because their album just came out! I suggest heading over to their website and taking a listen to their awesome live videos. Listen!!

    Wow. That is crazy. Another poster on this very board told me the same thing. You guys should do a genealogy search and see if you're related.

    Yep... I'd say they are one of the best bands, lyrically, that you can find right now.w They're live shows do get a bit energetic/rowdy. If that's not your cup of tea, you should go through their discography, particularly their "Gleam" EPs.

    Just because someone mentioned Jim Croce earlier, I felt this cover was appropriate.

    I've listened to a lot of their stuff -- I just can't get into it. It wasn't the atmosphere of them live; I had a good time at the show. I just don't think they're very original and I'm not crazy about the vocal style. To each his own.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    The Avett Brothers crowd gets pretty rowdy, eh?

    My only experience with the Avett Brothers was listening to some of a show I downloaded thru Dime. All I really heard was the band screaming. I only listened to parts of it and gave up. Maybe it was a down night for them. Might give them another try.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Get these albums

    Drag the River - Closed
    Old 97’s - Too Far To Care
    Lucero - Tennessee
    Two Cow Garage - Please Turn the Gas Back On

    Any Drag The River album is good. The first three are probably the best, with Closed being most people's favorite and their third full length "It's Crazy" being a close second...but I think Hobos Demos is a better introduction to the band, and my personal favorite. They are hands down my favorite band and are also awesome guys. The first few Liverpool albums are must haves also. The first two or three Two Cow albums are also great, but they really walk the line between country and rock, and get more rock and roll as the keep releasing albums.


    Other guys to check out

    Austin Lucas
    Tim Barry
    John Moreland
