Kacey Musgraves in Tiny Desk Concert
Kacey Musgraves performs over at NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series for a solid 22 minutes in support of her second album Pageant Material. Both the album and this TDC are pretty good stuff, best described as more of her bouncy "just bein' me, y'all" beat from the first album, with a slightly more dressed-up Nashville tone. This second album cinches what we all suspected after her first: she's a solid songwriter and musician, and will be on the stage for a long while.
Now a comment about the TDC. She gets a tad political toward the end. It played well to her audience at the moment, might put a crimp on things in some other circles. Personally, I didn't care one way or another, other than the fact that it did momentarily distract from the music. It may even piss you off. Meh, her stage, her time in the limelight, no big deal. I'll be around for her album #3.
