Avett Brothers- I and Love and You
This is quite possibly and more than likely my favorite album from 2009. And it sure does sound sweet on some vinyl. The album is a double lp on 180 gram vinyl. Nice, thick heavy record.
I really don't think there is a bad tune at all on here. "I and Love and You" is a killer opener. And yeah, I did get kind of sick hearing it on the radio after awhile though.
"January Wedding" is Track #2 and probably my favorite. Tune just gets stuck in my head. As does track #, "And It Spread". Hell, the whole album gets stuck in my head.
My girlfriend and I got the chance to see them last year at a Austin City Limits taping. I think that show just made me dig this album even more. And she really got into them after that show. Now I just need to wait for the rest of their catalog to come out on vinyl. I'm pretty sure this is the only one so far. Could be wrong though.
Well on another note, I finally made it past the A's! And it only took 38 records in 25 days! I'm pretty excited about getting to the B's tomorrow night. It'll probably take me quite a bit longer that the A's to get through. I don't remember right now, but I counted them the other day and it was significantly more that 38. Oh well, this blog is off and running!
