Today I discovered Kick Drum Heart by The Avett Brothers.
I discovered the song today after buying their album I And Love And You. It’s one of those things I do every New Year, vow to discover new (to me) music. And today The Avett Brothers caught my eye and hot damn am I glad they did.
It’s not like their music is wholly new to me. I know I’ve heard these songs on The Current. I even own one of their EPs which I probably bought on the cheap from Amazon. But today, today the music clicked inside of me. I love when that happens. I’ve listened to the whole album a few time, but have listened to Kick Drum Heart 12 times. I’m nothing, if not, obsessive.
It’s good. So good, in fact, that now when I’m finished pushing Dan Chaon’s Await Your Reply on people, and I’ve asked them if they watch “Glee”, I’ll start asking them if they’ve heard of the Avett Brothers. I like being a pusher.
