The music of Sam Phillips unfolds like perfect, miniature pop dramas. Her new album, Don't Do Anything, is loaded with great ones. Of all her incarnations as a performer – first as a Christian singer, then as a pop singer – the current Sam Phillips is one of the most alluring. On this Tiny Desk performance, recorded live at the desk of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen, Phillips performs four songs from her latest CD.
1. "Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us"
2. "No Explanations"
4. "Little Plastic Life"
