Yes, the album includes a recorded version of their “Kid A” cover, but there is so much more to Who’s than that. A far cry from their 2008 debut with the four-part How to Grow a Girl suite, Who’s Feeling Young Now? is rife with less-complicated melodies and the kind of lyrics that are both easily understood and yet far from the simplicity found in mainstream music. Not every song is shiver-worthy, but each one is a solid contribution in its own right to an album that deserves a spot in everyone’s collection.
Punch Brothers are deserving of much more than just royalties, though. It’s hard to imagine someone listening to Punch Brothers and not becoming an instant fan. If their albums don’t earn them a spot amongst your favorites, try seeing them live.
