In an interview published today by the Independent Weekly's music blog, Scan, Concord, N.C.'s The Avett Brothers reveal new details about their upcoming major label debut, I and Love and You, due on American Recordings in August. Produced by Rick Rubin, the album is "a more refined, complex record," Scott Avett says, sitting on a tour bus before the band's primetime gig at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, last month. "It will come across very easily as our best-executed piece, without a question. I think some people will have trouble with that, but we never wanted to be out of tune," says Seth Avett.
