Mandolin goodness - Chris Thile solo album

Kicking myself for not seeing Nickel Creek live, I sought solace in Chris Thile's latest solo album called How to Grow a Woman from the Ground. Not being familiar with his personal situation I'd say it's fairly definitely a breakup record. The mandolin is positively restrained in places, beautifully played but imbued with a melancholy typified by the track posted below.

Listen: Chris Thile - You're an Angel, and I'm Gonna Cry

Buy it
