    Chris Thile & Michael Daves Featured on "Acoustic Café"
    Eric McNatt

    Chris Thile and Michael Daves are featured on the latest episode of the weekly radio show Acoustic Café, heard on radio stations across the country as well as around the world on Voice of America. On the show, Thile and Daves talks with host Rob Reinhart about their recently released Nonesuch Records debut album, Sleep with One Eye Open, and play songs from the album live in studio: "Loneliness and Desperation," "My Little Girl in Tennessee," "Ookpik Waltz," and the title track, "Sleep with One Eye Open."

    Listen to this week's Acoustic Café online via the show's media player at acafe.com; Thile and Daves can be heard in the show's second and sixth segments. (The first segment of this week's episode includes "Simple Tools," a track off of Ry Cooder's new album, Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down.)

    Chris Thile and Michael Daves' album Sleep with One Eye Open, recorded at Jack White’s Third Man studio in Nashville, is a collection of 16 traditional tunes by bluegrass legends like The Monroe Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, Jimmy Martin, and Flatt & Scruggs. To pick up a copy of the album, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album plus the bonus track "Sophronie" at checkout.

    Chris Thile joined his fellow Punch Brothers to perform at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park this past weekend. The band will support Paul Simon on tour this November. For details, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
