    The War on Drugs played a set from their new album I Don’t Live Here Anymore, transforming their carpeted Burbank, CA studio into a performance space for an NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert.

    NPR’s great ongoing bit of the pandemic era is that artists find clever ways to introduce a tiny desk into their home spaces. After opening with the title track, vocalist Adam Granduciel suddenly looked up. “Anybody have a capo?” he asked, referring to the device that is sometimes called a guitar clamp. “I left one on my desk,” he added meaningfully. Suddenly, a desk the size of a cell phone lowered from the ceiling, and lo and behold, it held a capo. “Oh, perfect,” he said.

    Capo on strat, The War on Drugs segued into  “I Don’t Wanna Wait,” and they followed it up with,  “Old Skin” and “Change.” Check out the performance below.
