Album 2015 12 Songs. While Elliott Smith certainly ranks as one of the finest singersongwriters to come from the '90s alternative rock scene, Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield feared his songs were being forgotten in the constant onslaught of new music. For three years, the duo took their time in their homes and at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, N. to bring some of Smiths songs to new life. Their choices reflect their great knowledge of Smiths catalog, and theyre not afraid to reconfigure the songs to their strengths. With a 12-song selection reaching across Smith's entire seven-album output including the two posthumous releases of original material, the sequencing of the album is first-rate, mixing source albums, tempos, and energy, keeping the selection from getting too sullen, even in context of such melancholic material. Some of their versions are very loyal, with only minor changes to tempo or arrangements, such as their fully acoustic Fond Farewell. 50 видео Воспроизвести все Микс Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield.

Mayfield released her alternative rock album Make My Head Sing in 2014. Pitchfork said, Jessica Lea Mayfields third album opens with the loud, percussive crunch and grind of an electric guitar, thudding loudly and precipitously- Co-producing with her bass player and husband Jesse Newport, Mayfield keeps the sound loose and roomy, preserving the effect of three musicians huddled in a cramped practice space.

Longtime pals Seth Avett of the Avett Brothers and Jessica Lea Mayfield recorded this passion project over the course of three years - passion being the key word here.
