WATCH // Strand of Oaks’ NPR Tiny Desk Concert

Strand of Oaks’ Tiny Desk Concert is a great example of not only why this series is awesome, but also a testament to Tim Showalter’s songwriting that when he slows his anthemic rockers down, they become beautiful and contemplative. “Goshen ’97” gets special treatment here, and “Plymouth” and “JM” retain their energy and gain new poetic weight from the stripped down approach.

WOW // Night Beds In a Near Perfect Tiny Desk Concert

Every part of me wants to post this Tiny Desk concert and include only one word -> WOW. No lengthy introduction or description could make you fall more in love with Night Beds; you simply just need to watch and watch you will! The four-song set includes Country Sleep‘s “Faithful Heights,” “Ramona,” “22” and an older track, “Hide From It.”

“…one of 2013’s most arresting new voices.”Robin Hilton, NPR Music

Now go witness the beautiful thing that is Night Beds in person. They are currently touring the US, with European dates to follow. See all HERE.
