NPR First Listen has an AWESOME treat for new music junkies and music lovers alike. Avett Brothers new forthcoming album “Magpie and the Dandelion” will be available to stream starting at 11 PM Eastern Standard Time tonight. You can bet I will be joining the herd of people to crash their site to get a first listen. You can LISTEN HERE starting after 11 EST, 10 CST.
A couple months ago they streamed one song, “Another Is Waiting,” on the site, and it was a great first song. Now, the album will be available for an early listen before it comes out next week! I can honestly say I am really looking forward to this. Their last album, which I initially thought was a huge disappointment, grew on me and turned into one of my favorites of the recent 12 months. Now, less than 12 months later, they are back with a brand new pile of folky goodness. Take a listen tonight and let me know what you think. You fortunate souls on the West Coast don’t even have to stay up!
