Punch Brothers, “Movement And Location”

Driven forward by eighth-note violin riffs and acrobatic vocals, “Movement And Location” is the sound of progressive bluegrass entering the 21st century at a gallop. There’s a good deal of star power in the Punch Brothers’ lineup, but Chris Thile shines the brightest on this track, leaping into a Jeff Buckley-ish falsetto one minute and letting his instrument do the talking the next.
