Tiny Desk Concerts

A few notable concerts

This year marks the NPR Tiny Desk Concerts 15th birthday. A desk transformed into a stage for the most intimate concerts you’ll ever witness (maybe a bit exaggerated, but you get the gist). Here’s a few I’ve been enjoying lately:

Death Cab for Cutie Especially the first song, ‘Black Sun’ keeps haunting me.

“What Sarah Said” also features in a spotify-list with mainly sad song (which eventually might share).

Moon Hooch Two screaming saxophones and one drummer that keeps the beat up. What can I say - just listen!

Tallest Man on Earth With his raw voice not very unlike Bob Dylan his songs might also hit your ‘sad string’ although it’s happy-go-lucky at times.

The Swell Season Following their musical love-story “Once” a intimate desk concert by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.

See the full list of concerts here (apparently over 400 of them!)
