I am not sure if I have posted before about the wonderful series of Tiny Desk Concerts over at NPR (National Public Radio). A very simple idea, get a band or artist to turn up in their offices and perform a short gig behind a desk! It's like MTV Unplugged without the staging and rehearsals.
In the promo blitz that The National are currently undertaking they have recorded a session which is now live on the NPR website.
The band played a short four song set of tunes from the new LP:
- This Is The Last Time
- I Need My Girl
- Pink Rabbits
- Sea of Love
They are great stripped down acoustic version with the band in fine form.
