The Avett Brothers

I think it's fair to say that my desert island genre is I'd choose a Wilco, Neko Case, or Uncle Tupelo album over Death Cab any day. I just think that it is such a pure form of music. There is usually limited production (in terms of fake drums, etc.), a lot of strong songwriting, and I think that if the country business weren't a machine, it would value artists such as those listed above instead of cookie-cutter robots like Kellie Pickler and Keith Urban.

One band I love is the Avett Brothers. They play really straight-forward folk songs that I can't help but love. Their music fits every mood. "Die Die Die" is my favorite track from their latest album, "Emotionalism."
