Open Mike Eagle's NPR Tiny Desk Concert

Open Mike Eagle had one of the best albums of 2017, that's no surprise.  He took to NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series with songs from Brick Body Kids Still Daydream and beyond, and the results are pretty amazing.  '(How Could Anybody) Feel At Home' and 'Daydreaming In The Projects' come from the album, and 'Very Much Money' is a perfect finale, taken from Dark Comedy.  He's joined by Jordan Katz, Josh Lopez and Brandon Owens for what is an instant favourite Tiny Desk Concert.  Watch below!
