iTunes Review

Who’s Feeling Young Now? finds this supergroup gelling as a unit. Formed by lead singer and mandolin master Chris Thile, the band includes Chris Eldridge on guitar, Paul Kowert on bass, Noah Pikelny on banjo, and Gabe Witcher on fiddle (and lead vocals on “Hundred Dollars”). Starting from a bluegrass foundation, the Brothers veer into jazz, pop, rock, and hidden corners of Americana on their third release. With dazzling interplay they trade solos and dance around sophisticated tunes filled with unusual time signatures, melodic beauty, and washes of dissonance. But though the arrangements are complex, the songs remain catchy and accessible. “Movement and Location” is lush and expansive, “Patchwork Girlfriend” is playful and loose, “Don’t Get Married Without Me” is a charming piece of pop-folk, and the title track is edgy and driving. And as further proof of their eclecticism, they do a riveting cover of Radiohead’s “Kid A” on which they transpose the original’s electronic blips for acoustic plucks and bends that are every bit as textured and intriguing.

Third Time's a Complete and Utter Charm

'Punch' was good, 'Antifogmatic' was great, 'Who's Feeling Young Now?' is amazing! It has been so interesting to watch and listen to this quintet develop their unique sound. While pushing the harmonic boundaries on 'Antifogmatic', 'Who's Feeling' plays it a little more safe in terms of concrete melodies that are perhaps more ear pleasing than some of their earlier songs. However, don't think of this as a downgrade in the slightest. The production here is first rate. Many listeners will notice this record definitely has a "studio" feel to it. Some enhancements have been made to the production, and in my opinion, it lifts this record even higher. The virtuosity of all the players is here as usual, nothing short of perfection.

It seems that the group has finally fully embraced the connections they have been making into the Alternative music genre. Their live renditions of Radiohead suggested that they were starting their music in that direction ('Kid A' is pitch-perfect by the way). As a result, this record ends up feeling like one that could be nominated for Best Alternative album, even if the band plays bluegrass instruments.

I can't wait to leave this disc in my car stereo for months to come, because as we've learned with the Punch Brothers, their music only gets better with each listen. I can only hope that this album will finally start to give them the recognition they deserve to have. I just noticed that they contributed a track to the "Hunger Games" soundtrack, which should definitely help get their name out there.

The third time around is indeed the charm for Punch Brothers. Yes indeed.

I miss "How to grow a Band"

I like Bluegrass and I like "other music". I really am amazed by these guys' musicianship, I just hope their next album strays back over to bluegrass because they can really pick! Just an honest, humble, hope. : D

Very cool album

Thile is a monster (as is the rest of the band). Takes a while longer to grow on you. I'm still kind of freaking out that they covered Radiohead's "Kid A". How cool is that??
