This week, as part of their ongoing Tiny Desk concert series, NPR shared the footage from their Tiny Desk Session with BADBADNOTGOOD. The Canadian four-piece made a name for itself by reworking songs from the likes of Nas and ODB, eventually catching the attention of Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator. The masses took notice in 2015 when the group produced an entire LP for Ghostface Killah, Sour Soul. BADBADNOTGOOD has been called a hip-hop ensemble, but its roots are undoubtedly in jazz, providing them a gateway to countless different genres and styles. On their 2016 album IV, the group allowed that gateway to widen, adding soul and funk to the repertoire to incredible effect.Still only in their 20s, the band’s members never seemed intimidated by the intimate nature of the Tiny Desk set–If anything, it accentuated their enthusiasm. They played three selections from IV — including “Cashmere,” which more or less stayed inside the lines of the studio version, and “In Your Eyes,” which featured Charlotte Day Wilson‘s vocals. The tight arrangement allowed Wilson to hover gently above the instrumentation, showing off the band’s most promising work to date. You can watch the full set below:[h/t – npr]
