The best one. He strikes me as a man so full of joy, but then again, he may be severely depressed and just hiding it well.

Ok one more


In fact there's a bunch of very interesting performers piling up fast here. I haven't had time to check them all, but I did notice:-

^ Any group that calls itself an Arkestra gets my attention, and these guys didn't disappoint.

And how about DakhaBrakha, who bring the wild sounds of the Ukraine to NPR land:-

windsock's Florist is a welcome change of pace. Among all the inventiveness of these Tiny Desk Concerts, that girl's music is a reminder that you can take something simple, tweak it around a little, and make it all your own. Very nice.

Thanks Plankton: Steve Martin surprised me at how good he is on the banjo. Initially I had some resistance to the idea that a comedian could be considered as a serious musician too. It made me feel uneasy somehow - in fact I felt much more comfortable with these cross-dressing Koreans.

I've been a sucker for that sound ever since I got into Frankie Cosmos and, to a lesser extent, Feist a few years ago. It's truly beautiful and evocative.

^ Ok, windsock. I'll take a look at Frankie Cosmos. Thanks. (I think I dipped into Fiest a few years back and came away unimpressed.)

Perhaps they have a similar starting point, but with a different personality, ended up with a different product: anyway, the honesty of the Florist lyrics put me in mind of some of the artists mentioned here:-

Feist's Let it Die from 2004 is a gem of a record. The best thing her and her band's ever done. She's pretty minimalist though so I can understand how her tour de force can come across as pretty underwhelming.

Yeah, this sort of lo-fi stuff is super emphasized on melancholia, so it makes sense to having emo lyricism. Emo like Coheed or Mineral I realize though tends to have a lot cleaner production than something like Florist. Just more proof that sadness is one of the strongest emotional connectors for humans, especially when used in music.

Oh, so Frankie Cosmos is in Feist - I didn't realise. That's a cute video, and I like the line about "I haven't written this part yet", but it sounds a bit flatter than Florist imo.

^ Never really thought of that before, but yes, it sounds true. Perhaps you've heard of a genre called the blues, which proves your point.
