The National Perform "Conversation 16" on The Late Show with David Letterman


Check out The National on The Late Show with David Letterman. Somewhat surprisingly, they performed “Conversation 16” which I’d say is one of the lesser known tracks off of their critically acclaimed album High Violet.

It’s cool to see the Arcade Fire’s Richard Parry perform along with them. You can see him in the back with long, red hair.

Phoenix Performs "1901" on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien

Phoenix band

Last night, French alt rock band Phoenix made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and performed their hit song “1901.” I was glad they finally stopped by The Tonight Show to play for Conan and Andy, because lately it seems like they’ve been popping up everywhere else.

Earlier in the summer, the group was seen touting Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix on shows like Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and even Saturday Night Live. And just the other day I saw that they’ve been featured in a Cadillac commercial. Have they sold out? Maybe. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that “1901” is an awesome song. Besides, if Santogold (aka Santigold) can be featured in a crappy light beer commercial and still retain her credibility, then Phoenix has nothing to worry about.

Animal Collective Performs "Summertime Clothes" on The Late Show with David Letterman [VIDEO]

Animal CollectiveLast Thursday, the guys of Animal Collective made a rare appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. They performed “Summertime Clothes,” which is a cut off of their latest album, Merriweather Post Pavilion, released back in January. I’m actually pretty surprised at how unusually normal looking they were for their performance. With their ecclectic style of experimental folk music, you would kind of expect them to be donning masks/capes/costumes/huge beards for their live set (see above) — but no, instead they chose to rock your standard hoodie. Interesting.

Anyway, this song is amazing and should totally make it into your own music rotation. I’m pretty sure that even Letterman was feeling their energy and dug the performance. I mean, who doesn’t get a kick out of red & blue winged creatures (that look like they came straight out of a Dr. Seuss book) spasming about idly in the background?
