Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Punch Brothers

Punch

2008-03-17

Punch Brothers is made up of five highly credentialed musicians. Chris Thile (of Nickel Creek fame) is the leader, if you will, on mandolin and vocals. This album has elements of bluegrass, chamber music and jazz. Tracks 2 through 5 are movements in a four-part composition. They all stand well on their own. Highlights are: Track #1, which is a straight-up bluegrass stomp and track #6, an instrumental with intricate string work. Another highlight is the quiet track #8. - Rebecca Ruth
