In a Talk of the Town piece in the New Yorker last month, Alec Wilkinson called referred to the Bros. as  a “postmodern, punk-inflected, Bach-Stravinsky-Coltrane-influenced string band”  and super-roots producer T-Bone Burnett gpot very excited and called them "one of the most incredible bands this country has ever produced.” In 2010, The Inquirer's John Timpane intervewed Thile (who's pictured, second from right) when the group was on tour opening for Dave Matthews. Read that here. Below, watch the PB's do "Wayside" and Radiohead's "Kid A," at SXSW in Austin, Texas and click here to see them cover The Car's "Just What I Needed."
