The Carpenter wasn't going to be easy to top.
It cemented The Avett Brothers are the foremost leaders of American folk. However, the boys managed to construct their best work yet in the form of Magpie and the Dandelion. All of the rustic elegance that made The Carpenter so unforgettable remains intact—check the roots-y mastery of "Another Is Waiting" or sublime album starter "Open Ended Life". It's on the more intimate moments such as the closer "The Clearness is Gone" where the group truly shines. It's a combination of artfully executed songwriting and intricate Americana instrumentation that make the record so fascinating. This is The Avett Brothers at their most majestic, marvelous, and magical.
Enjoy a new classic from North Carolina's favorite sons.
