The Avett Brothers begin another new era of folk with their seventh full-length album, and first for American Recordings/Republic Records, The Carpenter. Produced by the legendary Rick Rubin and recorded in North Carolina and Malibu, it's an artful distillation of classic homegrown folk, rock energy, bluegrass soul and pop charm. In 2009, the group made mainstream waves with their lauded major label debut, I and Love and You. It landed at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered unanimous critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Paste, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Time, who even dubbed it one of Top 10 albums of the year. In addition to touring tirelessly, they gave memorable performances on the Late Show with David Letterman, the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as well as during a feature spot on the PBS series Austin City Limits.
