Thought this merited more than a post in the currently listening thread. Tiny Desk strikes again.

That was fantastic.

The Tiny Desk Concerts always sound great, and I can't figure out how those shotgun mics, with their super tight cardioid pattern, always sound so good on singers who are moving around.

Love the show, so much good stuff comes through in so many genres and the simple micing of a live performance is so welcome to my ears.

Excellent mics, high compression and levels and EQ automated to hell, I'd venture.

Not a fan, she makes a lot of OK music for me, blah.

And she should just change her fake stage name back to her real name like John Cougar.

I know. I have a buddy that runs a local show that deals with old soul music. He knows a ton about music and feels the same way about John Legend. He said both are just kind of there. Some of this concert is OK though.

What about Tony Bennett? rolleyes


The great thing about music is that there's always something to learn. The frustrating thing about music is that there's always something to learn!
