The virtuosic and freewheeling Punch Brothers are returning to Jorgensen by popular demand. Vanity Fair has hailed their most recent album, Who’s Feeling Young Now? as “their most expressive work yet as an ensemble—sophisticated, pop-y, kinetic and profound.” The title song sounds like hard-charging string-band punk rock, and the album contains some of the most exhilaratingly direct, sonically daring performances the group has ever recorded.
The band recently contributed to the soundtrack to the forthcoming Coen Brothers’ film Inside Llewyn Davis (film release date 12/6/13). Their song “Dark Days” was featured on the soundtrack to The Hunger Games.
‘Brilliant, audacious, original and, above all, entertaining.’ - The Times
‘Their songs glitter and soar, capable of pushing beyond traditional bluegrass into alternative rock.’ - BBC
"... sound like absolutely no other band on the planet." – Paste Magazine
"...totally mind-blowing." – San Francisco Chronicle
