A Great Tiny Desk Concert by Fountains of Wayne
I just discovered this wonderful live performance by one of my very favorite bands, Fountains of Wayne, on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert show in 2011. They often get put in the “power pop” pigeonhole, but there’s real emotional depth to their lyrics and music.
It speaks well of this performance that Fountains of Wayne’s set pokes around in a few gray areas; its four songs showcase a band with tremendous narrative gifts and a real flair for subtle beauty.
“The Summer Place”
“Valley Winter Song”
“A Dip In The Ocean”
