Near Northeast – What To Say (NPR Tiny Desk Contest submission)

Snowzilla’s thick white blanket is quickly retreating to towering, near-unmeltable mounds blocking sidewalks and lesser-used lanes of traffic, and super-hip indie folk trio Near Northeast seized the opportunity during the storm’s aftermath to film their submission to NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Contest, which ends tomorrow. “What To Say” is currently unreleased but distinctly memorable from their recent live sets at Black Cat and Luce Unplugged. Avy, Kelly and Austin intend to record a sophomore album later this year, so in the meantime, pay what you want for last year’s excellent full length Curios and keep your eyes peeled for more live shows in March.
