I and LOVE and YOU

The Avett Brothers have an old timey feel and they kind of look like The Band circa Music from Big Pink, who in turn looked like scroungy deserters from the Civil War. At any rate, these grizzled purveyors of Americana can write a good song. This one is pure as branchwater. It tells a little story, and you know how we like stories. Take off your shoes and sit a spell and give this a listen. Here they are live at Bonnaroo, singing a song dedicated to Wendy Lu from Kalamazoo.

Distant cousins, once removed: The Band in all their ragged glory in this clip from a hard to find documentary (ignore the foreign subtitles) on the making of the second Band album, the classic "Brown Album."
