Avett Brothers singing on a gondola

This made me yelp out loud with delight when the singing started:

Scott Avett has such a strong, gorgeous, spine-tingling voice by himself, and it gets even better when Seth joins in on the jubilant harmonies here on “St. Joseph’s,” from their Second Gleam EP. I’m in awe of the feist and kick injected into this version of a normally sedate and restrained song. Via Paste Magazine — what a moment. I’d give a nickel or ten thousand to be on that gondola.

More live Avett Brothers videos here (super quality, from November in North Carolina), and catch them on tour in the coming months:

  • I’m surprised that gondola could contain the awesomeness within…

    The boys sure do like singing in tight spaces with lots of people too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4I6-8YBhmk

  • Thanks so much for this. It was great. I used to see them in college at a small local bar when there were sometimes ten or fifteen people there. This was a nice reminder of those long gone days.

"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.
