SWELL SEASON PLAYS 1st NEW SONGS SINCE ‘ONCE’ @ NPR

August 13, 2009

Last week the Swell Season made a trip down to DC for a Tiny Desk Concert at NPR. If you’ve never been to a TDC, they’re quite a sight. They’re literally filmed at the desk of NPR’s Bob Boilen and though Glen admitted he’d never held down a desk job before, he and Marketa were totally in their element, performing seven songs mostly from the new album, and even playing the first-ever Tiny Desk encore!

Here is what NPR had to say about the performance: “From quietly mournful sing-alongs to Van Morrison-esque thrill rides, the whole thing doesn’t so much satisfy expectations as feed them further.”
