Join the office Christmas party at the PEL network. The hired band is Mark Lint’s Dry Folk, playing their entire album, and the guests are considerate enough to only talk between the songs. BYOB!
Mark holds mini conversations on philosophy, art, and life with all the PEL and PMP co-hosts, plus special guests Ken Stringfellow (a guy who played with REM and Big Star also sang on my album!), feminist scholar Jenny Hansen, and every member of the band (and old bandmate Steve Petrinko).
The beginning/end music is excerpted from Mark’s 2014 "Twelve Interminable Days of Xmas"; the party part at the end was edited by Mike Wilson (who was a guest on PMP).

I liked this so much. Thanks for the compilation. So many good songs on here. I think you would be a great tiny desk concert. If you’ve never watched those (but I’m sure you have) – here’s a favorite:
Yo Yo Ma – with some other strings:
