A Bluegrass Kinda Day – Part Two

The soundtrack for the return home from Tuckerton today started with some tracks from Trampled by Turtles’ latest album Palomino, as I eagerly await the April release of their new album Stars and Satellites. The five man band from Duluth, Minnesota formed in 2003 and has been on the rise since then, they played the Newport Folk Festival last year, and will be returning in 2012! You can listen to their 2011 performance here.  From the band’s Myspace page:

The band’s 2010 release Palomino (Thirty Tigers) garnered critical acclaim from NPR Music who praised both the band’s “impeccable dexterity” and “charm and melody to the songs.” AOL Spinner called the record “hard-charging music…infectiously raucous,” while Paste Magazine admired the band’s “punk ethos” as well as “virtuosity and energy” while naming the band as one of the Top 25 Live Acts of 2011. The band will support the new album with a North American tour this spring…

That tour will be bring them to Philly on April 21st, since it’s a Saturday night, maybe I can get Kathy to go! Anyway Palomino has a lot of great tracks. Here’s one of my favorites “Help You”  Oh, by the way the rest of the soundtrack consisted of some tracks by The Infamous Stringdusters and Nu-Blu, all in all a pretty good musical day!
