Punch Brothers close out a banner week with Rhapsody naming their new album, Antifogmatic, Album of the Day, calling its songs "so strong and the emotional impact of the material so direct" that they supersede their complex mix of genres. Relix says: "In the world of acoustic music, mandolinist Chris Thile is arguably the most elastic and wildly imaginative player/singer/composer of his generation. He has met his matches in his fellow Punch Brothers," and their new album "is better than the best of all their worlds."Read more|Journal Topics:On Tour Artist News Web/Technologypunch brothershttp://www.nonesuch.com/journal/punch-brothers-bring-antifogmatic-back-to-new-york-perform-on-wnyc-soundcheck-2010-06-23June 23, 2010|0 comments
