Sweet Husband heard the Avett Brothers at the House of Blues when he was in Chicago last month. He finally found one of their CD's--Four Thieves Gone--this weekend.
It's very bluegrass, and as such was a perfect soundtrack for the 4th of July. Some of the slow stuff was a little too croony to listen to over and over again, but the more upbeat tunes are definitely firecracker, livin-in-the-pool, watermelon-juice-dripping-down-my-chin, and I've-had-one-too-many kind of music. "Distraction #74" was stuck in my head all weekend, and I also really like "The Fall".
