Trampled By Turtles came to bluegrass music (and largely acoustic instruments) via rock bands, discovering along the way a love of more traditional music. The Duluth, Minnesota band just released its sixth album, Stars And Satellites, and it's clear--both musically and commercially--that things are really starting to cook. The band was on The Late Show With David Letterman recently, and of course now they've made their way to our little round room. (Which is more prestigious? You decide!) They graced us with this lovely version of Arcade Fire's "Rebellion (Lies)," complete with mandolin and violin bits. This ain't your daddy's Arcade Fire (or something). Enjoy.
