Julien Baker stopped by NPR’s offices to perform 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. Watch below as Baker performs two songs from last fall’s acclaimed debut album, Sprained Ankle (out now via 6131 Records). Baker did “Something” and the album’s title track. She also did a new song she joked was called “Sad Song 11” (but actually has the even sadder title of “Funeral Pyre”).

Don’t forget that Baker is performing at Under the Radar‘s official nighttime showcase at SXSW next Wednesday night at Central Presbyterian Church (200 E. 8th Street, Austin, TX 78701, which is at the corner of 8th and Brazos). She goes on at midnight. The rest of the lineup features Still Corners, Eleanor Friedberger, Car Seat Headrest, TEEN, England’s Younghusband, and Mass Gothic (former Hooray for Earth frontman Noel Heroux). SXSW badges and wristbands get priority admission to this event. Walk-ups on the night hoping to buy single tickets to the event might be let in, capacity permitting. The event is all-ages. You cannot RSVP for this event. The full set times are below and all the info on our three SXSW 2016 events can be found here.
