Hey Ya’ll, nothing warms me up more than new material from one of my favorite bands. We’ve recently been graced with new content from Mumford (Sister and “Home”). Well, here’s a new track from our dearly beloved Seth and Scott (and Joe and Bob), titled “The Once and Future Carpenter” premiered on CMT’s Unplugged.
The Avett Brothers have spent the year recording their follow-up to 2009 major label debut I and Love and You with producer Rick Rubin. And while no release date has been announced for the disc, the boys are jonesing to debut their new material. On an episode of CMT’s Unplugged, the North Carolina trio unveiled the strummy new track “The Once and Future Carpenter,” which you can watch here.
Brain Salad – February
This was the first monthly Brain Salad Release (ask me why there’s no January). I wasn’t really sure what I was doing when I started. It began as a simple playlist in my iTunes of songs that I couldn’t stop listening to, and then I decided I must share this gloriousness with the world. So come the end of the month I set out to search for some album art, and here we are. The mix starts and ends (and middles?) with Rolling in the Deep, the absolutely absurdly good track from Adele. This is one of the few songs I enjoy hearing on top 40 radio, and its because the splendidness cannot be ignored. Next, comes a newish track from the lovely Mumford and Sons, and I really can’t get enough of these guys. Another band I can’t get enough of, which you may know if you’ve had any sort of musical conversation with me, is Young the Giant (formerly the Jakes), who are featured twice with their old song Take Me Home, and with their cover of Rolling in the Deep. Tallest Man on Earth is the truth, nuff said, I love that squirelly dood. After Vampire Weekend’s fun Fleetwood Mac cover, the mix stays primarily electronic. Dabbles in some hip-hop with some Odd Future and Jesty, two of the most on point groups/people in hip-hop. Before the remixes at the end of the mix there are a couple atmospheric electronic tracks(Contact High will remain in my head for the rest of the year). Can’t get enough Jamie xx, he’s got producer’s midas touch. The end spell of remixes are either fun, dirty, filthy, or nasty. Listen and decide.
