Music: Tiny Desk Concerts

December 23, 2011

Belle Terre has made it through our first big holiday season and I’m glad to report that it was wildly successful!  We are so grateful for the growth of the business and all our wonderful customers.  I shall return to blogging shortly, but in the meantime, I wanted to share a recent find.

I am likely a bit behind the times, but I just located NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts on YouTube and I am in love.  Amazing mix of artists and it just feels so wonderfully intimate.  Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros are a current obsession of mine.  As NPR commented, they seem “to exist in a blissed-out alternate universe.”  I agree….and I would like to join them.


Not your style?  You can always watch these instead: Adele, Iron & Wine, The Decemberists, Nellie McKay…. {I could go on, and on, and on…}

Happy Holidays Everyone!
