Moses Sumney released his debut full-length album, Aromanticism, back in September via Jagjaguwar. Now he has stopped by NPR's offices to perform three songs as a Tiny Desk Concert. For the uninitiated, Tiny Desk Concerts are stripped down sets recorded at the desk of Bob Boilen, the host of NPR's All Songs Considered. He performed "Doomed," "Quarrel," and "Plastic," and was joined by Sam Gendel on saxophone and guitar, Mike Haldeman on guitar, and Brandee Younger on harp, although Sumney performed the first song solo on piano. Watch the performance below.

Aromanticism includes the singles "Doomed" (for which there was both a regular video and a live performance video), the beautiful "Quarrel" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), and "Indulge Me" (which was also a Song of the Week). Sumney also covered Björk's "Come to Me," from her 1993 album Debut. He also shared a video for "Lonely World" and performed "Plastic" on Later... with Jools Holland.
