I And Love And You

There are albums you love on the first listen, then there are the ones that take a few listens to get your head around. The Avett Brothers’ I And Love And You is pretty definitely in the second category, but once it’s got its hooks in you it doesn’t let go. I found my way in through the title track, which is at once personal and strangely majestic, with a gorgeous swelling sound that harks back to the soul-infused folk sound of the Tapestry-era Carole King, but there’s barely a dud track on the album. All I can say is do yourself a favour and check it out – it’s a cracker.

  1. Yeah, that’s pretty good.

    Some of the haircuts look like they come from the Tapestry era as well.

    Those albums you love on a first listen can be used to soundtrack your writing.
