Biography

The title of the third Punch Brothers disc for Nonesuch, borrowed from one of their new songs, is more an exhortation than a taunt. Who’s Feeling Young Now?, produced and engineered by Jacquire King, contains some of the most exhilaratingly direct, sonically daring performances the group has ever recorded. As the five members, ranging in age from their mid-20s to early 30s, have matured ... Read more in Amazon's Punch Brothers Store

I have become a big fan of Chris Thile in the last few months. I really enjoy his mandolin playing (a fairly new instrument to me) and the sheer energy that the instrument and his playing brings to the music. He's quite a good vocalist and his collabaration with a number of different people all seem to work.

This CD isn't as tight musically as some of his/their other works and the songs/tunes aren't as good but still shows off the band in a very favourable light.

For anyone new to Thile/Punch Brothers it's still worth a listen.

This is another first class recording. Though only a short EP it is still very good and very listenable too meeting the standards of previous material. If you like the Punch Brothers you'll like this.

Im the brief running time this covers the diverse sound and ability of the band, from atmospheric to more traditional efforts, to a stomping song at the end full of hooks and discord. Id have bought it at their gig in Bristol but it sold out in London.

Think of it as the Deluxization of "Who's feeling Young?" 18 Nov. 2012
By Kim A Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When the Punch Brothers released the deluxe version of Antifogmatic, the main disk was a very good, cutting edge blend of bluegrass instruments and pop sensibilities. The extra disks included some, more traditional songs (on DVD) and an extra disk that included some really creative instrumentals.

So after releasing "Whose feeling young?" the Brothers most pop music-like album yet, folks might be wondering, if there would be no more sea shanties, bluegrass instrumentals and other gentler, less strident songs?

Enter "Ahoy!" which includes a mixed bag of 5 songs, probably the best sea shanty since "Lighthouse", one bluegrass instrumental (with some intense classical stylings), a blues number about moonshine, a second vocal bluegrass song and a final number which is quite discordant and minor key like. In other words, it's the Punch Brothers reminding us of their range.

The real joy of this album is found in the breaks, the song endings and some of the bridges where the Brothers do amazing work. So you are listening to something that might have come off of "How to grow a Woman" and all of a sudden you get your face blown off by complex precision, more notes than any mortal man should have to absorbs in such a short period of time and sheer amazement.

The overall effect is frankly weird. But I have listened to the sea shanty (cut one) 5 times and it is really wonderful. The other stuff is quite good IF you are already acclimated to the Brothers. Otherwise, you might be asking yourself, "who was that masked band?"

A Nice Change 21 Dec. 2012
By Michael Sipes - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This short album is a great addition to the collection of any Blue Grass aficianado. The songs are really really good and make me smile happy smiles and I like to sing aloud when I wash dishes and I think of myself in some Appalachian cabin strumming a banjo and jumping up and down in overalls and a bent straw hat over my long beard. Oh yeah, it's good.

Great,short album. 19 Jan. 2013
By Paul Busman - Published on Amazon.com

This is a terrific little album. The five songs display a wide range of the Punch Brothers' styles and talents. I particularly like Moonshiner. This covers a song which is usually heard in a lusty barroom style. Here, it's soulful, almost wistful and is quite lovely. This is some of the best download money I've spent in a long time.

These guys were the "house band" for the documentary : "Another Day/Another Time - Celebrating the Music of 'Inside Llewyn Davis' " If they are good enough for T. Bone Burnett and Joel and Ethan Coen - They're good enough for me. "We NEED MORE BANJO!" - C Walken

Fantastic music. 22 Oct. 2013
By Aaron R - Published on Amazon.com

"Another New World" is a cover that not only does justice to the original song by Josh Ritter, but is a reinvention of the song.
The song is quite a unique story.

Down Along the Dixie line is short and sweet.

Moonshiner is a somber in lyric, but is musically soft and calming.

Squirrel of Possibility is a groovy instrumental which seems to end as quickly as it began, leaving you with the desire for me.

Icarus Smicarus is the final and strangest of the songs. It's also the most catchy with it's simple, yet distinct, progression and lyric.
