Artist: Trampled by Turtles
Song: Wait So Long
Straight out of Duluth, Minnesota, Trampled by turtles has been combining old school blue grass with a new age approach much similar to the likes of The Avett Brothers and Old Crow Medicine. These guys make it rain with a furious storm of banjos, fiddles, mandolins, and guitars. And when they play live? Forget it.
“Wait So Long” is off the bands most recent album Palomino, and certainly possesses the heavy weight intangibles to become a blue grass classic. The song’s rapid strumming coupled with profound lyrics such as “I could never pretend that I don’t love you. You could never pretend that I’m your man.”, make this band one that you should keep your eye on. Bluegrass isn’t just Grandpa’s music anymore and you can thank bands like Trampled by Turtles for that.
