Watch Bartees Strange Perform on NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk (Home) Concert’

    Bartees Strange is the latest musician to perform on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series. Performing from the basement of his studio in Falls Church, Virginia, the Washington, D.C. artist and his band performed four songs from his debut album Live Forever: ‘Boomer’, ‘Mustang’, ‘In A Cab’, and ‘Flagey God’. Watch the full set below.

    In between songs, Strange took the opportunity to highlight artists and albums he enjoyed from the past year, including Yves Tumor’s Heaven to a Tortured Mind and “indie rock Michael Jordan” Aaron Dessner. “The dude inspires all of us,” Strange said of Dessner. “The work he did this year — the Taylor [Swift] records, Big Red Machine stuff, the National stuff…As a producer and a person who makes stuff, it’s so wildly inspiring to see someone work like that.”

    Last month, Bartees Strange made his late-night television debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Live Forever, one of our favourite albums of 2020, arrived in October 2020.
