The Avett Brothers is easily my favorite band (and not just because my friend Joe is their cello player). If you haven't heard them, count yourself lucky that you are reading this post. You're in for a treat because they're absolutely fantastic.

The band's new video is a beautifully constructed piece of awesome that offers haunting commentary on the world and how we treat it.
