One of the funnest things about having teenagers is how they keep you cool — and keep you young (despite the gray hairs and wrinkles that point to the contrary). Adrian and his buds have a growing diversity in their music tastes and this band, Trampled by Turtles, has been cranked up during a couple of recent road trips. Rooted in bluegrass, the quintet draws from indie, folk, rock, punk and country; some call their music “newgrass.” Trampled by Turtles is performing at major music festivals and venues all across the country this summer.
Here’s “Alone” from their newest work, Stars and Satellites — recorded in a log home outside Duluth, Minnesota, and performed live on NPR.
And if you’ve never listened to “Wait So Long,” do; it’ll make your heart race with pleasure.
