- 6. The Avett Brothers, I and Love and You – Back in September of last year The Avett Brothers played “Kick Drum Heart” live, and when I heard them play it I knew that if the upcoming album held up the promise and awesomeness of that track, the album would be amazing. The album is amazing. Gutsy and beautiful. “Kick Drum Heart” & “Laundry Room” are the best back-to-back tracks on an album this year. If those two songs, back-to-back, don’t make you fall a little more love with music every time, there might just be something broken in your musical heart.
