Argentine singer-songwriter Federico Aubele uses his dark, husky voice to produce a specific effect in the three songs he performs at this Tiny Desk Concert: Together, they jell into one impressionistic midtempo ballad. A voice like Aubele's could be restrictive: His lower register seems to always reflect something dark and lonely. Think of your favorite bottom-scraping vocalist and the lyrics he or she interprets. But while touches of nostalgia and longing seep into both the words and the way he sings them, Aubele can also wrangle a shy smile and a whimsical raised eyebrow with that deep, emotive voice. It's perfect for his own expressive lyrics, which he sings in both Spanish and English — sometimes in the same song. And don't even get me started on his guitar playing. --FELIX CONTRERAS Set List "Laberinto Del Ayer" "This Song" "Somewhere Else" Credits Producers: Felix Contreras, Denise DeBelius; Audio Engineer: Kevin Wait; Videographers: Denise DeBelius, Gabriella Garcia-Pardo, Olivia Merrion; photo by Jim Tuttle/NPR

This is the second video we did for the album "Berlin 13", that's coming out on March 22nd on ESL Music. Sebastian Litmanovich @ Tea Time Studio directed it. We shot in London, in Stoke Newington, in the borough of Hackney, my favorite area in London right now. We shot 2 videos in just 3 days and we had a lot of fun doing it. Enjoy.
