The Duluth, Minn., band Trampled by Turtles is built for speed, harnessing both the blazing pace of punk and the impeccable dexterity of bluegrass. But there's real charm and melody to the songs on its breakthrough album Palomino, which starts fast — with the irresistibly accelerating "Wait So Long" — and keeps the energy up throughout. Fans of The Avett Brothers' more unhinged side will want to make themselves available when Trampled by Turtles shows up at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I.
