Default Movement and Location

I've never really had much interest in bluegrass music itself, but some of the so-called "alternative bluegrass" groups have caught my ears.

I very recently stumbled across Punch Brothers and have been listening to their album, Who's Feeling Young Now?, for the last week.

"Movement and Location" is astounding, just for the range of what can be done with acoustic instruments - mandolin, fiddle, banjo, guitar and double bass.

Their song, "Patchwork Girlfriend", is amusing . . . perhaps especially for people interested in non-monogamy. At the very least, it suggests how complicated even monogamy can be, depending on who all is involved.
