The Avett Brothers: "Apart from Me"

Whenever the temperature starts to drop, all I crave is some Americana music to go with frosted windows and a toasty fireplace. It's those rustic, heartfelt melodies that sound perfect this time of year.

Lately, my playlists have consisted of Lord Huron (Lonesome Dreams will forever be my staple winter album), Norah Jones, Boy & Bear, The Staves and these guys. The Avett Brothers are undoubtedly one of my very favourite bands - and their most recent roots-rock album, Magpie and the Dandelion, sent me right over the moon this past fall. "Apart from Me," which tells the story of life on the road through Scott Avett's handsome vocals and a band of plucked guitars, has quickly become a cozy winter classic that's bound to make the season just that much more special.
