A.V. Undercover

Punch Brothers cover The Cars

It's just what we needed.

About This Episode

Punch Brothers were kind of a natural choice for A.V. Undercover, since the modern bluegrass-influenced band has made cover songs a part of its repertoire for years. (You might recognize chief Brother Chris Thile from his time in Nickel Creek, another band known for innovative cover versions.) For their jaunt in the little round room, Punch Brothers decided to tackle The Cars' 1978 hit "Just What I Needed." We think you'll find it delightful, and perhaps it will lead you to the Punch Brothers' equally delightful new album, Who's Feeling Young Now?
