Music: Avett Brothers

Our friends Matt and Amber saw the Avett Brothers live in San Francisco a couple weeks back. They fell hard for the group...and I'm jumping on the bandwagon too. It's a country band, but in that ironic-old-timey-modern sort of way like Old Crow Medicine Show.

My obsession is currently raging with Paranoia in Bb Major (the fourth song on the playlist). I've listened to it 15 times since downloading on Wednesday. The temptation to sing along at my desk is overwhelming!

YAY Emily! This is one of the best live bands touring the states today. I am so glad you gave them a shout.

A good friend of mine was able to book them for her wedding before they became big-time and started playing on Conan and the like... lucky lucky girl.

I am a huge fan, they are locals here in NC. My husband first described them to me as "grunge grass." Paranoia is great...i also love Swept Away & Die, Die, Die
