Scott Avett (The Avett Brothers) Talks with Eef Barzelay (Clem Snide) on the Talkhouse Podcast

The friends and collaborators share the role of belief in their art, memories of David Berman and Jason Molina, and thoughts on “fluffing the nest."

Did you catch the first of our two podcasts this week? It featured Yrsa Daley-Ward reading her powerful new poem “Making The End,” and Helado Negro in convo with Buscabulla. Check it here.

Today’s show sees The Avett Brothers’ Scott Avett chop it up with Eef Barzelay of Clem Snide. The friends and collaborators cover a lot, including: the role of faith in their music; being true to their art even when it hurts; and some amazing stories about Jason Molina and David Berman.
