Watch Matthew Houck’s beautiful Tiny Desk Concert for NPR

Croon on, crooner.

Earlier this year, Matthew Houck and Phosphorescent stopped by the NPR office to perform for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, which brings bands in for unique, stripped down sets at (you guessed it) the NPR Music staffers’ tiny desks.  With his voice nearly shot, Houck still managed to deliver a stirring, beautiful set.

“The result was Phosphorescent’s essence in bold relief, with Houck just trying to make it to the next song without giving up. When he sang, ‘I will keep a-singing ’til I no more can’ — during the neo-spiritual ‘My Dove, My Lamb’ — the momentary alignment of song and circumstance was stunning.” – Otis Hart, NPR
