Thanks to npr you can now listen to the soon to be released album from The Avett Brothers titled The Carpenter. I’ve given it a couple listens and so far I’m really digging the lead single “Live and Die.” If I had to pick a second favorite at this time I’d go with the upbeat “I Never Knew You” though I think in time many of the softer songs will really grow on me. Songs like “The Once and Future Carpenter,” “Pretty Girl From Michigan,” and “Down With the Shine” could easily become my favorite track with more listening. The album is due out September 11th, the same day as Dave Matthews Band’s Away From the World and two weeks before Mumford & Sons’ Babel. September is shaping up to be an excellent month for new music.
