Chris Staples just finished up a tour with Manchester Orchestra and along the way he stopped by the NPR Music office to perform a stripped down version of "Silent Night" for the NPR Music staff.

It comes hot on the heels of Robin Hilton from the NPR Music team naming Chris Staples' Barsuk debut American Soft as one of his top albums of 2014, saying:

"If albums are friends, then 'American Soft' by Chris Staples was my closest confidant in 2014. No other record set off the waterworks in me like this one did... These are the kinds of songs and reflections that make you feel nothing but gratitude for every precious moment of your miraculous little life. Just a perfectly composed album of remarkable beauty."

If you're in Seattle, don't miss Chris Staples' last show of 2014 at The Sunset Tavern on Saturday, December 27th! ·read less·
