Avett Brothers LP Streams at NPR

 

Did we mention the
band is on the cover of the new issue of BLURT?

 

By Fred Mills

 

Beginning today, and running through September 29, NPR Music
will host an Exclusive First Listen of the Avett Brothers new Rick
Rubin-produced I and Love and You at www.npr.org/firstlisten. (Music
fans frequently get sneak peaks of new albums a week prior to release at NPR
Music, which has hosted in recent months Wilco, Moby, Bjork and Neko Case.

 

The Avetts album hits stores Sept. 29 (they’ll be on the
Letterman show the night prior) and the band is already on the road promoting
it – see itinerary, below.

 

Meanwhile, they’re also our cover subjects for the new issue
of BLURT, hitting newsstands in a couple of weeks. As profiled by our
Contributing Editor A.D. Amorosi, the Avett Brothers have their entire career
to date recapped, along with some illuminating anecdotes as well as producer
Rubin’s own assessment of the band.

 

“As soon as I met them, I knew they were special,” said
Rubin. “Meeting them as much as anything promoted our working together.”

 

“It was what our game was meant to be,” said Scott, of the
recording sessions. “We all did our jobs, brought the craft and let the art
lead the way.”
