Song of the Day: Josh Ritter “Folk Bloodbath” featuring the Punch Brothers

Huge thanks to my good friend Ben for sending me this PHENOMENAL clip of the Punch Brothers backing Josh Ritter in his famous ballad, “Folk Bloodbath”.

Now, my love for Josh Ritter is well known – he’s easily one of my longest standing music crushes due to his evocative lyrics and lush sound. But to combine such a lyrical giant with some of the most acoustically innovative musicians today? I almost fell off my chair just reading the video caption. And after listening?

I think I might need to book an appointment with a cardiologist.
