Punch Brothers – Antifogmatic [2010]

June 23, 2010

Post #42, written by SPK.  Punch BrothersAntifogmatic.  If you like pure bluegrass, rock, or classical music, you probably won’t like this.  But if you can imagine them all rolled up into a ball, pressed flat, and cut into four-minute eclectic cookies, this is your band.  His third album since departing from grammy-winning Nickel Creek, mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile’s newest, Antifogmatic, with the band Punch Brothers and produced by renowned Jon Brion, conjures musically the restlessness of ambitious young urban spirits eager to be recognized for creativity by day, lyrically distracted by the call of collective loneliness-avoidance at night (supplemented with Rye Whiskey, of course).  A personal favorite is the out-of-body violin “float[ing] out the window and down the street” in contemplative Me and Us.  See the WSJ review, their entire Bonnaroo set, and don’t miss the homage to Radiohead below.  Enjoy!
