Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.70
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "'I Never Knew You' is a bouncy, piano-driven confection full of Beatlesque touches."
Entertainment Weekly - p.140
"[A] gorgeously crafted set of sad and soulful laments laced with acoustic guitars, sharply punctuated piano, and delicate cello."
Billboard (p.32) - "In the 90-second 'Geraldine' Scott and Seth Avett harmonize brightly over a rollicking honky-tonk groove, while 'Winter in My Heart' slows the tempo to contemplative soul-folk stroll."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.85
3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] the Willie Nelson-like 'Winter In My Heart,' heartland rock of 'Pretty Girl From Michigan' and Beatles harmonies on 'I Never Knew You'..."
Paste (magazine) - "THE CARPENTER provides a return to rudimentary Avett songwriting, in that the most striking moments on the record are born from playful banjo-guitar banter and confessions revealed in 4/4 time."

Concord, North Carolina-based indie folk-pop darlings the Avett Brothers received rave reviews for their 2009 breakthrough major-label debut, I and Love and You, which peaked at number 16 on the Billboard 200 album chart and resulted in an invitation to perform alongside Bob Dylan and Mumford & Sons at the 2011 Grammy Awards. While much of that record's success stemmed from brothers Scott and Seth Avett's poignant songwriting, producer Rick Rubin played a large part in letting those tracks shine. Rubin returns for the group's seventh studio album, The Carpenter, which is set to be released in September 2012.
