WEEKLY GIVEAWAY
Giveaway Prize
This week 2 lucky WUMB Members will win a copy of the CD "Wild Animals" by Trampled By Turtles!

The winners will be announced on the morning of Friday September 19.
Giveaway Info

The band's seventh studio album is called Wild Animals. Trampled by Turtles continue to focus more on the songcraft than the speed and precision. Simply put: This isn't your daddy's bluegrass band. This is bluegrass for people who don't necessarily like bluegrass. Trampled by Turtles happen to be a string band, but they have no problem dipping their toes in rock. Heck, they've covered Pixies on record, and there is even a smattering of drums on the new album, which has always been a no-no for a bluegrass band.

The title track "Wild Animals" sets the tone with its dark and dreamy feel. "Hollow" almost marries the old bluegrass tradition with a more modern Americana feel. "Repetition" ? it's a different version of the track featured on Simonett's Razor Pony EP ? is another winner. "Nobody Knows," neatly combines traditional bluegrass with an almost gospel feel; the late Bill Monroe might have liked this one. You might even catch yourself singing along to the first single, "Are You Behind The Shining Star."
