Trampled by Turtles 

When: Fri., April 24, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $23 ADV, $25 DOS
After a string of dynamite albums and a cloudburst moment (2010’s “Wait So Long”), Trample by Turtles now sit atop the mantle of bluegrass and American folk rock in this young century. Their latest album, last year’s Wild Animals, is a stripped-down version of what most Americana listeners have come to know and love from these guys in previous years. It’s a contemplative album -- one that lets each musician advance his craft in new ways. Take a song like “Ghost,” which transposes a moody story of lost love over haunting strings and a steady wash of backing “oohs.” One of Trampled by Turtles’ great strengths has always come off the fingers of fiddler Ryan Young. He shines on the last album, accenting slower tunes (“Wild Animals”) and sending waterfalls of strings cascading across Dave Carroll’s mind-frying banjo work (“Come Back Home”). (Eric Sandy)
