Punch Brothers has a new album coming out next week. Not the easiest-to-listen-to material in the world but challenging, interesting and beautiful in many places. As mentioned earlier, I’ve been working on their website this week, picking up where the designer left off. They’re going to be in Paducah next month.
The name comes from a humorous Mark Twain story (oops…I guess that was redundant) about a jingle for conductors punching tickets:
“…Punch, brothers! punch with care!
Punch in the presence of the passenjare!
I came across these jingling rhymes in a newspaper, a little while ago, and read them a couple of times. They took instant and entire possession of me.”
Anyways, check ’em out.
