October 7, 2010

Have to admit, being a card-burning Music Snob, I was somewhat disheartened by the tremendous popularity of the Avett Bros I and Love and You CD last year (similarly concerned that Mumford & Sons' Sigh No More presently rests at #3 on the iTunes album charts, wedged awkwardly between Jason Mraz and Lil Wayne ...). The Avett's Live Vol 3 returns us to the glory days of banjos, Pretty Girls and shouted vocals. It's sure to be a letdown for new fans. On the other hand, it does sit just above Drake at #23 on iTunes. And I hear Glee is considering an Avett-centric episode soon.
