The Avett Brothers

  • Music
    In less than a year, right on the heels in fact of the Avett Brothers' last album The Carpenter, there's new music to hear.Highlighting the eclectic sound…
  • Hear the dynamic, thought-provoking folk-rock band play songs from its latest album, The Carpenter.
  • For the fifth straight year, whether marveling at Taylor Swift's capacity for surprise or trying to figure out what to type during the combined 37 minutes of Bruno Mars performances, Linda Holmes and Stephen Thompson live-blogged the ceremony in an effort to serve your reading-along needs.
  • The band follows its 2009 breakthrough album with The Carpenter, a set of songs about death and mortality — themes that have dominated the members' lives of late.
  • With all due respect to its terrific albums and kinetic, frenetic live shows, if The Avett Brothers could put on a three-song acoustic concert at every workplace in America, the band would be a world-beating colossus. For proof, listen to this performance in the NPR Music offices.
