Best List Addendum

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?
Go there.

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.
