Watch Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals’ Tour de Tiny Desk Concert on NPR

Tiny Desk Concert with Anderson .Paak

It’s been a scant two weeks since we had the good fortune to witness Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals take Ventura by storm. Since then .Paak has been percolating round the country in support of his phenomenal Malibu album. Yesterday .Paak & The Free Nationals made their way to NPR’s Tiny Desk and killed softly. In contrast to the high-decibel and manic energy levels at the Ventura Theater, .Paak and band sat in at the Tiny Desk and gave a tour de force of jazzed up R&B/hip-hop. Watch below as .Paak subtly slays on drums, while guitarist Jose Rios and bassist Kelsey Gonzalez layer on perfectly as they open with lifting single Come Down and then segue into shimmering Curtis Mayfield/K-Dot sounds before closing with (the interestingly-requested) brash older-track Suede. Watch below to get a feel for .Paak’s proficiency and power.  Don’t you miss him next time he comes to town. He’s out to take your ears prisoner.

Set List:

Come Down
Heart Don’t Stand A Chance
Put Me Thru
