SOUNDS LIKE
• Progressive, genre-bending rock expressed through instruments often associated with a classic American sound named after a particular Kentucky turf
• Bluegrass meets classical, all the while glowing with hints of modern pop

KEY TRACKS
I Blew It Off, My Oh My

BEST LYRICS
“We lie in bed / The wireless dancing in my head” — Familiarity
“Look at us we’re glowing / Tripping the dark fantastic / Singing the phosphorescent pinks and blues / To beloved tunes / In beloved rooms / I can love it all to distraction / With this” — Little Lights

Thile is pronounced like “Theelee.” Good try, though.

CriterionCafe says:

Good Job guys! Really liked the review. Although I’d say “Familiarity” is a key track for me, it blew me away. Wondering if you guys will review Andrew Bird’s great new album. Definitely subscribed
