Kick off your week with an NPR Tiny Desk concert from GoGo Penguin.
Last Friday, NPR Music uploaded a three-song set by the Manchester-based, left-field piano trio, made up of Chris Illingworth (piano), Rob Turner (drums) and Nick Blacka (bass).
The performance starts with “Raven” which “was inspired by a dream Chris had playing chess with a raven,” Blacka explains in the video. Throughout, hypnotic and repetitive minimalist keys combine with powerful basslines and broken beats to create soundscapes you can ponder life’s deeper questions to.
