You can read about their 2015 album on No Depression, listen to their Folk Alley Session, watch or download their recent Tiny Desk Concert and purchase their album at Free Dirt Records. Here’s the video for their song “Long Black Train”…

James Vincent McMorrow

By: Brendan

One of my favorite Tiny Desk Concerts is this one featuring Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow.

You can download an mp3 of the song “Sparrow and the Wolf,” from the album Early In The Morning, at Rolling Stone.

McMorrow’s next album, Post Tropical, will be released January 14th. Stream the first single, “Cavalier,” at NPR.

If all that isn’t enough for you, McMorrow also recorded an awesome “Wicked Game” cover. You can hear and download a remix of it below.

Anais Mitchell on Tiny Desk Concert

Guest Post By: Brendan

Muruch favorite Anaïs Mitchell was featured in a recent NPR Tiny Desk Concert. The stripped down performance makes her poetry even more poignant. Featured in this performance are the songs “Shepherd,” “Tailor” and the title track from her album, Young Man in America (Muruch’s #1 of 2012). You can see the video and download an mp3 of the performance below.
