The Avett Brothers

I caught the Avett Brothers on Austin City Limits the other night (originally aired in January of this year) and they totally blew me away. Beautifully crafted songs with beautiful lyrics, performed beautifully. I've read about these guys for a few years and they always seemed like they'd be right up my alley. They are.

The song Murder in the City makes me feel so tenderly towards my own brothers that it almost makes me cry. All right, there's no "almost" about it, the truth is I've cried twice in the past three days listening to that song. The lyric Always remember there was nothing worth sharing like the love that let us share our name gets me every time.

** when you watch this video, you have to look past the tank tops and beards. Close your eyes and just listen if necessary. Then watch the whole Austin City Limits show. You won't regret it.
