News:: The Avett Brothers release Gleam II

web site

All too often people try to make a song into something it's not. Forcing significance or emotion into a few simple strums so they can channel their own hangups and insecurities through another person's pen. Well, on Murder in the City by The Avett Brothers, the sentiments expressed will never be misconstrued.

The power of the starkly honest song hits with the force on a car crash. The purity of love, the cold touch of death, and the always stretched, but never breaking bond of family; the Avetts open up to anyone who takes the time to listen and when they harmonize the last line of - "A tear fell from my father's eyes, I wondered what my dad would say. He said I love you and proud of you both, in so many different ways" - it's impossible not to get engulfed by the rush of emotion.

Pick up Gleam II when it comes out tomorrow. If this song is any indication, the EP is destined to be one you turn to when the clouds are the darkest or the sun shines the brightest.
