The Punch Brothers
Another way to experience the talent of The Punch Brothers is to watch some of the songs they cover on YouTube. I'm going to show you two of my favorites, but there are a bunch more online.
The first would have to be a cover of Radiohead's "Packt Like Sardines In A Crushed Tin Box" off of Amnesiac. This song is complex enough as it is, but for a bluegrass band to cover it so well is quite an achievement. This is just another example of how The Punch Brothers are expanding their genre.
The next cover is of "Reptilia" by The Strokes, not much can be said except they are on fire in this video.
