The Avett Brothers had a banner year in 2009, with their latest release, the Rick Rubin-produced I and Love and You, placing high on many year-end top music lists, including here at PopMatters. It was their major label debut and showed a great deal of musical growth as the band embraced the piano to build out and enlarge their sound. This Saturday (23 January) they take the stage in Austin with the garage rockers Heartless Bastards.
