Jessie Ware

Ware's singing brings warmth to electronic music and a swooning quality to her own pop, so it's no surprise that her visit to the Tiny Desk was filled with casual poise and spontaneity.

Beach Slang

James Snyder's euphoric punk anthems become raw and uplifting confessionals in this acoustic set — which includes a new song, "Too Late To Die Young."

Death Cab For Cutie

In a beautifully stark performance, the band plays two songs from the new Kintsugi and two older favorites — one from Plans and one from Transatlanticism.

Sylvan Esso

Performed softly in the light of day, the duo's year-old material feels fresh and lovable when performed outside of a dark, loud club setting.
