The band was also the musical guest on a very special episode of A Prairie Home Companion on Saturday, guest-hosted by none other than band member Chris Thile (who won a Grammy Award the very next day for his album with Edgar Meyer, Bass and Mandolin). You can listen to the complete episode at prairiehome.org and watch Punch Brothers perform "My Oh My" and "Boll Weevil" off of The Phosphorescent Blues here:

Chris Thile sits in for Garrison Keillor on A Prairie Home Companion again this coming Saturday, when label mate Rhiannon Giddens will be the musical guest. You can stream the show live at prairiehome.org.

And tune in to World Cafe on NPR stations across the United States today to hear the band perform and talk with host David Dye about the new album. The band was featured on BBC Scotland's Another Country with Rick Ross, which you can hear here.

The Phosphorescent Blues is available now at iTunes, Amazon, and in the Punch Brothers shop and Nonesuch Store, where orders included a download of the complete album at checkout. The vinyl edition, due February 24, is available to pre-order now.

    Rhiannon Giddens stopped by NPR, joined by multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi and bassist Jason Sypher, to perform a Tiny Desk Concert of songs from her new album, there is no Other, and her previous album, Freedom Highway. You can watch it here. "Despite its weightiness, Rhiannon Giddens' music is entertaining, and her voice, the melodies, and her accompaniment are engaging," says host Bob Boilen. "But it is music infused with lessons and deep purpose—something all too rare in popular music in my opinion."
