NPR Music: Tiny Desk Concerts http://www.kunc.org en Moon Hooch: Tiny Desk Concert http://www.kunc.org/post/moon-hooch-tiny-desk-concert People ask me all the time to name my favorite Tiny Desk Concert. It's my desk and I've seen almost all of the nearly 400 concerts up close. So you'd think this would be easy.

I've followed Phonte Coleman and Nicolay in their 10 years as a band — and it's evident their writing and production are honest and downright pungent at times. But when it's time to perform, it's all about fun.<p>Backed by keyboardist Zo! and percussionist Boogie, Phonte, never short for words, lays down some quick ground rules.

But we're not talking just any electric violin.

The new music on <em>Upside Down Mountain </em>contains the sort of personal songwriting that got me loving him in the first place.
