Muzz performed for NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert. The supergroup of Paul Banks, Josh Kaufman and Matt Barrick delivered songs from their 2020 self-titled debut album.

Filmed, recorded and mixed by D. James Goodwin for NPR Music, Muzz’s Tiny Desk set is “one of the two proper Muzz performances that exist,” as per a press release. For the occasion, the trio performed four songs off Muzz: “Bad Feeling,’ “Knuckleduster,” “Trinidad” and “Summer Love.”

Muzz multi-instrumentalist Josh Kaufman detailed the atmosphere around the session for NPR Music. Read Kaufman’s words below:

At the very end of a long couple days of rehearsal and taping we, very late at night, Paul jet lagged and the rest plain exhausted, stayed awake a little longer to try a campfire style strum along to some of the songs from our new LP. The result here is our Tiny Desk. It means A LOT to us and we’re totally honored to have Muzz be a part of this now legendary series. We also want to acknowledge the fact that it’s a privilege for us to even be able to convene in person right now and were very happy that we could use that opportunity to share these stripped down, very human/intimate portraits with y’all.
