The Gleam by The Avett Brothers
Released: Sep 2006
Label: Ramseur Records
The Gleam is pure, distilled Avetts bottled at the source. With just Scott and Seth on acoustic guitars and vocals -- no Bob Crawford on bass -- this six-song EP sounds more like an afternoon front porch session than any of their other releases. Confessional, insightful, wry and endearing, these willfully minimalist tunes showcase the Brothers' mellow side with a thematic complexity that's both earnest and wise. It's no stretch to say that the Avetts are the most important acoustic performers around today.
