Well, who would've thunk it: NPR sure has shown Buke & Gass their fair share of love this year. Whether it be including their debut in NPR Musics 50 Favorite Albums of 2010, an interview/performance segment on WNYCs Soundcheck, a Marketplace music pick with Buke & Gass Arone Dyer, or tracks featured on Morning Edition, their support has run far and wide...and we love it!
Bob Boilen has been giving Radiolab some major competition for being the band's biggest supporter at NPR naming it his 4th best record of 2010 just below Brassland pals Sufjan Stevens & Jonsi -- and then bringing them up again (again!) in his All Songs Considered year-end wrap-up. I think we probably owe him something now.
Anyhoo, and now (and now!) airing (?!?) on NPR Music is this most excellent Tiny Desk Concert" by our favorite instrument making duo. We can't embed it because Tiny Desk don't seem to roll that way but you can click to it right quick on the internets.
If you are one of the lucky ones living in the District of Columbia, Philadelphia or NYC you can still see them off the internet as well, as they wrap up their December tour. Bundle up and brave the cold people. It's worth it. NPR says so. Apologies that we can't offer you a tote bag. Yet.
