Unlike 2015’s Undercover, with Undercover Vol. 2, the Infamous Stringdusters expand even further out of their genre, eschewing many of the more classic rock covers and instead favoring many tunes that may not so commonly make the rounds in a bluegrass band’s repertoire. As Jeremy Garrett, fiddle player for the group, explained in a press release, “Sometimes you hear a cover that comes from a completely different genre and it works, sometimes it doesn’t, sometimes you just have to try. As an artist, this can be liberating.”
