In case you needed any more proof that the Infamous Stringdusters are awesome, you know, aside from their excellent new album, Laws Of Gravity, then check out this video below. The band literally plays the entire album in just a little over four minutes to exceptional degrees.
Who? - The Infamous Stringdusters, based in Charlottesville, Virginia. The band is comprised of Chris Pandolfi (Banjo), Andy Hall (Dobro), Andy Falco (Guitar), Jeremy Garrett (Fiddle), and Travis Book (Double Bass).
Album Release Date/Producer? - January 13th, 2017 / Billy Hume along with the band themselves
Genre? - Contemporary Bluegrass, Country, Folk
Opinion On The Act's Discography Overall? - After sampling their earlier albums prior to listening this along with fully listening to their last release, 2016's Ladies and Gentlemen, I wish I had found them sooner. They are a great band, and I like their sound a lot. If there are Country acts out there who are truly “evolving” the genre with their work, The Infamous Stringdusters are doing the exact same thing for Bluegrass. As such, this was probably my most anticipated album of 2017 at the time that I wrote this.
Where Might Other People Know This Act From? - Their last album, 2016's Ladies and Gentlemen featured a ton of artists such as Lee Ann Womack, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Aoife O' Donovan, Sarah Jarosz, and many more, so if you were fans of any of those artists you might have checked them out before. Otherwise, they've been at it for almost a decade now so anyone who is a fan of Bluegrass most likely has heard of them.
