As leaders of the Avett Brothers, Seth and Scott Avett have enjoyed tremendous mainstream success, particularly for musicians whose songs are rooted in traditional folk, country and bluegrass. And yet not much has changed for these siblings from Concord, N.C. Their 2009 major label debut, 'I and Love and You,' cracked the Top 20, arguably kick-starting the current folk-rock boom, but chatting with Diffuser.fm following a recent string of European tour dates, younger sibling Seth seemed reluctant to take the credit.
Like its predecessor, last year's follow-up, 'The Carpenter,' was recorded in Los Angeles with legendary producer Rick Rubin, but this time around, the brothers weren't afraid to put the down the banjos in favor of experimenting, most notably in the electric 'Paul Newman Versus the Demons.' In his conversation with Diffuser.fm, Seth discussed how fans have received 'The Carpenter' and shared his theory on why old-timey sounds are all the rage. He also extolled the benefits of being pretty and looked ahead to this year's Mountain Jam festival.
