The Avett Brothers
"Another Is Waiting"
This is some genuinely "alt" alt-country: The genre-bending Avett Brothers mix bluegrass banjos and power chords to re-imagine classic Weezer as sweet, strip-mined mountain music. There's a girl reading a magazine on a dark road and an invitation "to let me see your skeleton well before your life is done" that rings out like a how-dee! from emo hell.
