Magpie and the Dandelion

Yesterday a band that I have been following for years, The Avett Brothers, released a new album, Magpie and the Dandelion. This folk-rock band continues to evolve each album, which some don't like, but I see them developing and changing their style as any true artist does overtime. Truthfully I am partial to the band as they are from North Carolina and nothing can quite bring me back from homesickness like the Avett Brothers. Enjoy the lead single off the album, "Another Is Waiting," below. 

The band says this of the album in an issued press release:
"If you think about a Magpie, it’s a bird from the crow family. You can see them everywhere, and they’ve got this strange grace. And, we all know what a dandelion is. It reminds you of being a kid and watching a flower come apart on a summer day. There’s a youthful wonder in that. Those kinds of feelings live and breathe inside this album."
