We love a good podcast, and our recent discovery – Tiny Desk Concerts – is an absolute joy. Recorded live at the (tiny) desk of Bob Boilen, the host of an American online radio show called ‘All Songs
Considered’ (who has a zeal for new music reminiscent of our much missed John Peel), these gorgeously intimate gigs include performances by Adele, The XX, Aimee Mann, Agnes Obel and Mercury
prize winners alt-J and Benjamin Clementine.
The beautiful, soulful performance by Violents and Monica Martin (pictured) is a particular favourite.
