Jake Bugg: Tiny Desk Concert

Monday, March 10, 2014

There was a haze over Jake Bugg when he arrived at the Tiny Desk. He was expressionless and quiet. That all changed when he strummed fast and fierce on his acoustic guitar and began a flow of words reminiscent of Greenwich Village in the '60s, not modern Clifton in England's East Midlands, where he grew up.

Bugg is a prolific talent already working on his third record in as many years. His second album was produced by Rick Rubin and recorded in California. His recognition in the U.S. is still small, but that'll change — maybe even before we get that third record.

Set List

  • "Slumville Sunrise"
  • "Me And You"
  • "Storm Passes Away"
  • "Lightning Bolt"
