Super XX Man Tiny Desk Concert on NPR Music

Super XX Man Tiny Desk Concert on NPR Music

On a recent tour through the northeast, Scott Garred (aka Super XX Man) was invited to stop by the NPR offices in Washington DC and perform a Tiny Desk Concert at the request of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen. The concert, available as streaming video on the NPR website and as a higher quality podcast via iTunes, features Scott giving an intimate accoustic performance of three songs, including two from the well-received recent album Volume XII: There'll Be Diamonds and one from 2003's Volume VI: Collecting Rocks. Boilen had previously reviewed Super XX Man's Volume X album on All Songs Considered back in 2006.

In other Super XX Man news, Scott recently discovered the master tapes from what became the Volume III EP, originally released on vinyl in 1997. While the EP only held six tracks due to the limitations of the 7" format, Garred had recorded more than 12 songs for Volume III and will be giving the tracks some special attention for a digital re-issue of the collection coming soon.
