    Punch Brothers Play "Antifogmatic" Tunes for Relix TV; The Sun Gives Album Four Stars

    Punch Brothers performed a couple of songs for Relix magazine's Relix TV backstage at Bowery Ballroom in New York City. Head to relix.com to watch the band perform "Alex" and "Don’t Need No," two songs off their latest Nonesuch release, Antifogmatic.

    In the UK, where the band was featured on the BBC World Service program The Strand earlier this week, today's Sun gives the album four stars. Though their instrumentation may say bluegrass, these five musicians "take the genre and head off to all sorts of new horizons," says The Sun. "You’re left thinking this is a new and thrilling form of music. Jazzgrass, anyone?" You'll find the review in today's paper.

    Another four-star UK review comes from the current issue of Maverick magazine. The band members' "combined musical brain waves," reads the review, "are off the Richter scale. Notes buzz like a bee in a jar, scales leap from high to low like a crazed man on a cliff top, and a visceral drama exudes from every playful flourish." Read more in the Maverick's September issue.

    To pick up a copy of Antifogmatic on vinyl, CD, or in the deluxe edition complete with the CD, a live EP, and a DVD, head to the Nonesuch Store.

    "What happens when a jazz virtuoso sets his sights on a cinematic sound?" ask All Things Considered host Audie Cornish. "Pat Metheny has done just that on his new album, evoking the plush and soaring landscapes of film scores. Reviewer Tom Moon says it's among the most ambitious projects of Metheny's long career." "He's pushing forward, seeking breathtaking and profoundly new vistas," says Moon. "It's got the epic journeys of the Pat Metheny Group and the fiery improvisational exchanges of his more recent jazz sessions. It's also a stretch beyond those horizons into textures and atmospheres not often heard in jazz." Hear the All Things Considered piece here.

    Jeff Parker's new album, Suite for Max Brown, is "a demonstration of how jazz mixes it up with other musics these days," says NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross music critic Kevin Whitehead. "Parker invokes his days as a crate-diving club DJ, a job where you can juxtapose beats from all over as long as they serve or creatively stem the flow." You can hear the review here.
