The band first announced they were working on the album in a June 12, 2013 interview and that the songs were all recorded during The Carpenter’s recording sessions. Magpie and the Dandelion Q&A.
Think of Magpie and the Dandelion not as a sequel to its predecessor, The Carpenter, but as that album's other half-both records were drawn from the same batch of sessions with legendary producer Rick Rubin. Here, Rubin again makes certain nothing gets in the way of the Avetts' ample, unpretentious musical virtues: an earthy, inviting mix of alt-country and folk-rock and straightforward, introspective songwriting.

With Magpie and The Dandelion, released just 13 months after The Carpenter, The Avett Brothers are on pace to continue their Rubin-fueled commercial success. Opener Open Ended Life is the Avetts at their best, a rollicking, rocking track complete with bluesy harmonicas and a foot-stomping fiddle solo. The lyrics center on the idea of a life not constrained by rules or boundaries, a romantic notion and one that works extraordinarily well for the Avetts. On Another Is Waiting, the album’s lead single, the band tries their hand at their most straightforward pop song yet. It’s concerned with staying true to yourself and doing the right thing - a recurring theme throughout The Avett Brothers’ discography. Though their previous releases offered palatable singles to the public, songs like I And Love And You and The Carpenter’s Live And Die had emotional resonance not found here.
Danny Clinch/Courtesy of the artist. On the largely pensive new Magpie and the Dandelion, the brothers spend a good deal of time examining the push and pull between their day-to-day pressures and impulses (a need to tour in "Good to You," the pursuit of responsibility-free rootlessness in "Open Ended Life") and a need for connection, contentedness and openness to wonder. As with The Carpenter (also produced by Rick Rubin, and released a mere 13 months ago), Magpie and the Dandelion largely eschews the raw, jittery energy that so often infuses The Avett Brothers' early work
