Ani DiFranco recently performed a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR, ripping through a live set for which "she brought hell of a backing band, with drummer Terence Higgins and singer/violinist Jenny Scheinman joined by none other than Ivan Neville on keyboards." The performance is electric, as DiFranco submits searing takes of two cuts from her storied past along with a highlight from her new album Binary. Over her career, NPR notes, DiFranco has evolved quite a bit as an artist. Yet "she's also kept her core values intact, from her outspoken commitment to progressive social causes to her strenuously maintained independence from the machinery of the music industry."
