Punch Brothers – Punch – 2008

January 30, 2009

For some time now, I have been an enormous fan of Nickel Creek’s better third, Chris Thile (pronounced “Theé-lee.”) Time and time again, he has impressed me with not only his Trio-supported NC sound, but with his budding yet well paced solo and collaborative careers. His recent effort with “Punch Brothers” is in keeping with his tradition of quality folk music that doesn’t limit itself to folk music fans. While released in February 2008, Punch, thier first album, is full of beautiful compositions that wind throughout a headset like the Kentucky Blue grass after which the genre is named. The album’s final track, “It’ll Happen” feels stretched, perfectly thought-out and foreboding; an excellent expression of lost love and heartache. Have a listen:
