Earlier this year, Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes released an amazing collaborative album called What Kinda Music. The two meshed together so well, that if it weren’t for the current pandemic, we could have perhaps seen them tour together. Today, we’ve been treated to the next best possible thing: a Tiny Desk (Home) Concert by the duo.
NPR has altered their beloved series, with musicians playing live editions of their music for us from their own homes, reinforcing social distancing guidelines. This newest episode shows Tom and Yussef in different spaces, but jamming together with other bandmates in perfect synergy. The duo performs the songs “Nightrider” and “Tidal Wave,” and even has the incredible and beloved John Mayer come in for a surprise guitar solo.
Check out this brief but brilliant performance below. Enjoy!
