music — live music especially — is absolutely one of my biggest passions, and i’m pretty open to most genres. i can usually find something positive to say about any live performance. i just love music, and i’ve had way more spiritual moments at concerts than in church, so that’s something.
i understand some people might not dig the avett brothers — too banjo-y, too twangy, too different. but as my brother can always, somehow, some way, find something good to say about a movie that i loathed, i hope the truth in the avett brothers’ music might be a common ground for all. even if you hate the banjo or southern accents or kick drums…jeez, how could anybody hate the kick drum? you can listen to the entire album, which officially comes out 9/29, on npr’s website right now. i believe it’s some good dinner-cookin music, personally.
