The Weather Station recently took part in NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series.
The set saw Tamara Lindeman and co. performing four tracks from her recent album, Ignorance. The band played in a scenic setting in a dark forest, matching the aesthetic of the album. First, The Weather Station performed “Tried To Tell You” before launching into “Parking Lot.” Then, they played “Atlantic” before closing out with album opener, “Robber.”
Each of the four tracks contains imagery about our relationship with nature and the planet. From lyrics about a blood-red sunset to delivering lines like, “Thinking I should get all this dying off of my mind,” this poignant performance is definitely a must-watch.

More about The Weather Station:
The Weather Station was recently shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize. The Polaris Music Prize awards $50,000 to the artist who creates the Canadian Album of the Year. These albums are judged solely on artistic merit, without consideration for genre or record sales. The band was nominated alongside Zoon, The OBGMs, Cadence Weapon, and more!
Ignorance marked the Toronto artist’s fifth album as The Weather Station. The album sees her adding a disco flare to her folk-pop sound. The dynamic, complex 10-track album opens with a simple, yet compelling hissing hi hat and stuttering drum beat. Then, it expands and morphs for a full minute before Lindeman delivers her first line, “I never believed in the robber.”
