On the heels of learning that G. Love’s new album would be produced by The Avett Brothers we’re given a first listen to lead single “Fixin’ to Die.” And well, it’s certainly different from what we’ve heard from him in the past. It’s reminiscent of his folky album closers, which tend to be his best songs, and bursts with strong harmonica work and soulful harmonies, lots of stomping and handclaps. But, and this is a big but, the vocals sound really strained, as if The Avett Brothers were asking for something from G. Love which he doesn’t have. Still, it’s a positive first impression.
