Greensky Bluegrass – If Sorrows Swim

Michigan’s perennial string band Greensky Bluegrass deliver the follow-up to their breakthrough 2011 album Handguns with the equally robust If Sorrows Swim. In the three years since Handguns
hit number three on Billboard’s bluegrass chart, the progressive
Kalamazoo quintet have honed their distinct style which blends the
earthy warmth of traditional bluegrass styles with a more muscular,
darkly hued rock tone. The fifth studio album in their 14-career, If Sorrows Swim contains contributions from dueling songwriters, mandolinist Paul Hoffman and guitarist Dave Bruzza,
whose differing styles create a complementary whole that is a major
part of the band’s identity. Full of the top-notch playing fans have
come to expect, it’s an album grounded in the lonesome rural sound, but
with plenty of punch and immediacy.
