The instruments may be bluegrass but this is not bluegrass or newgrass.
Challenging music, some crossover to pop sounds. Some great material here.

1 – (10:23) Familiarity* 3-act meditation, shifting tempos, brilliant playing & vocals.
2 – (5:27) Julep* Slow-to-mid, soft song of mortality, lovely.
3 – (3:30) Passepied (Debussy)* Excellent playing by all on this instrumental.
4 – (3:07) I Blew It Off* Swinging song about personal reverie, nice.
5 – (3:14) Magnet Sex & power, just OK.
6 – (4:19) My Oh My* Vocals by Chris Thile & the ensemble soar, amazing.
7 – (2:37) Boll Weevil (Traditional)* Fine rendition of a classic old-time song.
8 – (0:58) Prelude (Scriabin)* Short & pretty banjo instrumental.
9 – (4:17) Forgotten Just so-so.
10 – (4:16) Between 1st And A Intriguing track, flawless playing, classical in feel.
11 – (4:42) Little Lights* Soft, slow ballad that builds in intensity, nice.
