Doesn't everybody listen to the NPR Tiny Desk Concerts?
There are now over 500, lots of surprises and a few clunkers. Sometimes your musical heroes/heroines just aren't having a good day (see Steve Earle).
Anyway, you like music that isn't dictated by the Hit-Radio Machine?
Here's my choice for best Tiny Desk of 2015: DakhaBrakha
Here's best Tiny Desk of past years: St. Paul and the Broken Bones
And here's (drumroll) my best ever Tiny Desk of all time ever: Dessa
Honorable Mentions: Sarah Jarosz, Hozier, the Mynabirds
Not what you expected, huh? Okay then, send me yours.
Happy trials, Martin
Mutt and Jeff are listening to all 500 programs right now. They'll be back shortly.
