Punch Brothers are reaching out to fans to participate in the making of their next album. The group has put out the request for folks to sing a few lines on the new record "as kind of a meta reference to its theme," says band member Chris Thile.

The Ceaseless Roar" "His Best Solo Album Yet," Says Q; Mojo, Uncut Album of the Month
Robert Plant's new album, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, has already begun to receive rave reviews in the UK. The album has earned four stars from Q and Mojo and nine out of ten in Uncut. Q says "he’s produced his best solo album yet … a beautifully moving, soul-stirring, bravely genre-blurring album." Mojo, calling it "a rewarding, often touching listen," makes it Album of the Month, as does Uncut, which says it is "a record that deftly aligns the chakras of Plant’s storied career while also being a bold act of reinvention ... His uniqueness has never been more apparent."
