Leon Bridge’s Tiny Desk Concert Is As Close To Perfection As You’ll Get Today

Here is the video from Leon Bridges’ NPR Tiny Desk concert. Behold its great beauty. He’s a fantastic singer, a talented musician, and insanely sophisticated and self-possessed for a 26-year-old. Bridges manages to reference the sounds and look of the ’50s and ’60s, while still keeping his overall sound fresh and modern. These four songs, off his debut album, Coming Home, are smooth and beautifully layered, making them just the thing to listen to on loop until your day ends and you can go home. Press play, close your eyes, enjoy. [NPR]
