Seth Avett sings 'Fish and Bird' by Tom Waits

Seth from the Avett Brothers singing a Tom Waits song, which is a combination of two very good things.

Covers of Tom Waits songs are  dangerous. It's generally a bad idea to try to imitate the great man's unique delivery; it just sound like Tom Waits diluted (Are you listening, Rod?).  But Seth Avett has a sweet melancholy voice so this one works.

 And yeah, I know, a whale isn't a fish. But 'Giant Aquatic Mammal and Bird' would just sound stupid.
