Waxahatchee—real name Katie Crutchfield—and Kevin Morby are the latest artists to do an NPR Tiny Desk, albeit from their own home, as the world self-isolates amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The two musicians (who are a couple) sat down in Morby’s home in Kansas City for a stripped-down set. They played “Fire” and “Lilacs,” two songs from Crutchfield’s new album Saint Cloud, Morby’s 2016 tune “Beautiful Strangers” and a cover of the late Jason Molina’s “Farewell Transmission”—a song Morby said “seems appropriate right now.”
This is not the first homebound performance from Crutchfield and Morby. Since the pandemic set in, the duo have done Instagram livestreams with covers of Big Star, Emmylou Harris, the late John Prine and Silver Jews.
