when i leave your arms / the things that i think of

This brand new Avett Brothers video for their song “Murder In The City” (off the Second Gleam EP) went live over on the Paste Magazine site today. It’s quiet and gorgeous, but full of small moments that make me smile; the way his Seth’s hands pause on the ivories, the smile shared when the brothers remember the trouble they got into when they were younger, the dark look that flits across Scott’s face when he sings about “when I leave your arms, the things that I think of . . .” He looks so concerned. I know the feeling.

Murder In The City – The Avett Brothers

It’s a whole different side of them than this; equally wonderful.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
