Armed with Tiny Amps: More Wilco!

Expanding on a theme...

Here are Tweedy and company performing a four-song set for NPR's Tiny Desk Concert Series which features artists filmed live making beautiful music at the desk of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen. There's something pretty magical about all of the performances in this series. It's one of the best things I've stumbled upon which is why I'm writing about it here even though it isn't television related. Occasional rambles off the chosen path are allowed, right? Especially when they sound this good.

There's a lot to love in the clip below--their cool guitars, Tweedy's chewed up and spit out appearance, the purity of his voice but the desktop percussion situation made me smile and turn my head to figure out what exactly was going on there every time they cut to it. And be assured, there is nothing miniature about the awesome that awaits you. Enjoy.


  1. That series is brilliant! They've had some really great people on too.
