“Candles” (Live On WNYC) (Video)

    Rufus Wainwright’s “pop” album Out of the Game features plenty of help from his musician friends. Mark Ronson produced it, and Nick Zinner, Sean Lennon, Anna McGarrigle, Nels Kline and many others made guest appearances. But Wainwright stripped all of that away for a performance on Soundcheck for WNYC yesterday, where he played a session armed with just his trusty guitar. The closing song ”Candles” even got the video treatment, which you can check out below, while the entire performance on Soundcheck is streaming over here. [via AHIAS]
