Listening Through

I have a list titled “Music to Purchase” which is just about as long as my “Crafting To Do & Learn” list. Last Sunday, thanks in part to Amazon’s music download specials, I happily crossed Carolina Chocolate Drops – Genuine Negro Jig and the Avett Brothers – I and Love and You off the list!

I have found both albums to be “listen straight through” recordings, which makes me a very happy girl! Nothing irkes me more than finding only one or two enjoyable songs aside from the released singles. I knew I would like CCD’s album because I so love me some string band music! The Avett Brothers I wasn’t so sure about. Of what I heard I liked but several people gave me very mixed reviews.

I would have to say that Cornbread and Butterbeans from CCD is among my favorite songs from Genuine Negro Jig.

As for the Avett Brothers, well, this was tough because I seriously LOVE the entire album. If pressed I would have to say “January Wedding” is my favorite song. What can I say banjos do it for me! haha

By the way, if you are a Broken Bells fan, Amazon is offering their self titled debut album for $5 the entire month of July. I’d be all over that if I didn’t have it already! James Mercer makes my heart go thump-thump, Thump-Thump, THUMP-THUMP!
