The Carpenter by The Avett Brothers

avett-brothersAfter 2009’s wonderful I & Love & You, North Carolina’s Avett Brothers have once again joined forces with producer Rick Rubin for their new album The Carpenter.

The first single ‘Live & Die’ sets the tone for another fantastic record exploring themes of love, life, loss and death. No other band out there blends roots music with a rock’n’roll attitude quite like this sibling-led outfit, and The Carpenter is another worthy addition to what’s becoming an impressive body of work.
