The one thing that’s always impressed me about The Avett Brothers is how they lay their emotions bare and empty every time they perform. Honestly, save for maybe Bruce Springsteen, I can’t recall another band or performer that played every concert or show like it would be their last.
This week, while stopping by Jimmy Kimmel to promote the band’s latest album, , they instead joined forces with the Brooklyn Philharmonic for a version of “I And Love And You”, which was particularly moving considering Hurricane Sandy. Seriously, if you don’t get the goose bumps from the symphonic arrangement of this song alone, but also because of the circumstances in which it was played, then I’m afraid you have no soul.
