Tiny Desk Concerts

By 2009.06.22 tags: , , . Comment»

NPR may be a huge mega media monolith but ya gotta luv ’em for dreaming up this ever so small, homey, humble and intoxicating way to convey new music: the Tiny Desk Concerts. Sit some musicmakers down in front of Bob Boilin’s desk at the NPR music offices and let ’em sing a few — no surround sound mega-amps, no pyrotechnic lightshows; just some folk with their strings and voices playing around at work.

Try this latest 3-song Tink Desk set from The Avett Brothers. Or head right for the Welsh wonder, Tom Jones Performs Live.
