Watch Lucy Dacus Crush on Tiny Desk (Home) Concert


As far as performers go, you can’t feel more intimate than when you see Lucy Dacus in person. Her personality beaming throughout as she banters between songs, her new album Home Movie definitely feels personal. So it’s no wonder that her recent NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert feels like you’re right there with her. Between the opener “Brando” and the closer “Thumbs” you’re right there with her throughout.

Opening with “Brando” the notes just curl off the cuff here. Between the softer opening, Dacus’ vocals are abound above the instruments in the room. Performed at her hometown high school, the set is sprinkled with a kindness that evokes the energy of the songs. Where “VBS” sounds pretty close to the album version, on “Going Going Gone” the band switches things up. Centering with plenty of guitars and just keys, the song definitely holds its own here. However for the final track “Thumbs” Dacus goes it alone and stuns with her honest approach to the song.

The performance can be viewed above or on YouTube. Home Video is available directly from Matador Records on multiple formats. It can also be streamed on all streaming services or purchased in all digital music stores. Lucy Dacus is on tour beginning July 24 in Portland, ME at Portland House of Music & Events until April 15, 2022 in Paris, France at La Maroquinerie. Her complete touring dates can be found here.
