"Dewi Sant seems like the kind of guy that gets talked about well. You'd like to think that his goodness and sweetness both precedes and post-cedes him. The deeds of romance and love that he submitted as offerings have been duly noted and they will be played back for him when he gets to the pearly gates, as if to give him an opportunity to take a bow or to receive something like a good guy standing ovation.

Punch Brothers' fourth Nonesuch album, the T Bone Burnett-produced The Phosphorescent Blues, addresses with straight-up poignancy and subversive humor the power and the pitfalls of our super-connected era. Digitally fueled isolation may be a theme, but this virtuosic acoustic quintet offers its warmest, most emotive and elegantly melodic work to date-so invitingly human in its approach that it practically ushers the listener into the room as these guys assemble in front of a mic.
The world is falling apart one day at a time, and the majority of us sit and watch as if attending a public hanging-more and more, our interest is piqued by the appalling, while our thoughts and reactions remain largely absent.

In a society that is predominantly dormant, Retox brings this reality to the forefront in a forward-thinking way, commanding our ever-rapidly-decreasing attention spans and determined to provoke some kind of visceral response, good or bad.
