The Avett Brothers ”Live and Die”

My first impression of this song was that it was far too adorable, that these guys were indulging their worst folksy precious moments impulses. Then, one day, while out for a walk, it came up on my iPod and I didn’t recognize it at all, and I thought it might be some stray old Guster song that I’d forgotten about, and I fell sort of in love with it. So, okay, maybe I should give their new album The Carpenter a real chance after all.
