Seattle singer-songwriter (and SXSW 2011 alum) Damien Jurado left quite the impression when he performed a set for NPR’s lauded Tiny Desk concert series late last month: “This one [was] special,” Tiny Desk’s Stephen Thompson and Mike Katzif agreed when reviewing the performance footage. “Though Jurado throws in a fantastic unreleased song here (“Newspaper Gown”), this material comes from a 2010 album called Saint Bartlett. And, as marvelous as these pieces sound in their official form, it’s hard to top how they come off at the Tiny Desk — it’s just a big dude playing sad songs, his eyes pinched shut as if to make it easier to be alone with the music, but the performance is perfect the way it is.” Have a look for yourself below.
