Description : Daughter Of Swords: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

This performance was recorded on Feb. 13, 2020. 


April 29, 2020 | Stephen Thompson -- Back in the Before-Times, when Tiny Desk concerts were held in front of gatherings of people — "crowds," we called them — we'd remind everyone in attendance to silence their cell phones. When the music was loud enough, it didn't matter if people followed instructions. But when Daughter of Swords came to grace us with a few hushed folk songs, the music was so eerily still, you could have heard a phone vibrate.

Though she's joined by a full band here, Daughter of Swords was originally envisioned as a solo project for Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, who returned for a second Tiny Desk concert after making a stop as one-third of the wonderful Mountain Man. Sauser-Monnig's counterparts in that group have already been by as individuals — Molly SarlĂ© in a solo set, Amelia Randall Meath as the singer of Sylvan Esso — so it was only natural that Sauser-Monnig would return, too, this time to showcase songs from 2019's gorgeous Dawnbreaker (as well as a new track called "Prairie Winter Wasteland").

Between the rustic sweetness of the arrangements and Sauser-Monnig's between-song banter — which included, among other things, a low-key discussion of breakfast foods — Daughter of Swords' set doubles as a fine way to trick your doctor into not prescribing blood-pressure medication. In anxious times, it'll settle you right down.

Indie folk singer/songwriter Alexandra Sauser-Monnig writes introspective, laid-back songs that are tinged with sadness and hope in equal measure.

Formerly of folk trio Mountain Man, Sauser-Monnig stepped back from music for almost a decade after the group went on hiatus. Eventually, the need to write music returned, prompting Sauser-Monnig to write a solo record. She began working on her debut album in 2017, though she stalled on completing it due to Mountain Man re-forming the following year. Her debut album, Dawnbreaker, was finally released in 2019 and explored the theme of an impending breakup.
