Watch Modest Mouse Play “Pups To Dust” On Seth Meyers

Earlier in 2015, Modest Mouse came back with Strangers To Ourselves, their first new album in quite a few years. They’ve been out on the promo trail lately, and last night, those promotional efforts brought them to Late Night With Seth Meyers. On that show, they played the pleasingly ramshackle album track “Pups To Dust.”… More »

Watch Desaparecidos Kick Out “City On The Hill” On Seth Meyers

Desaparecidos, Conor Oberst’s leftist punk band, just released Payola, their second album overall but their first in 13 years. It absolutely rules. And while it doesn’t seem that weird to see Oberst on late-night TV, it does seem slightly weird to see this version of Oberst, with the tangled hair in his face and the… More »

Watch Belle And Sebastian Play Two Songs On Late Night With Seth Meyers

When Seth Meyers calls Belle And Sebastian “one of my personal favorites,” I’m inclined to believe him. He seems like exactly the sort who would’ve gotten his mid-twenties mind blown by If You’re Feeling Sinister. So it’s cool that Meyers got to welcome the Scottish twee battalion onto his show last night. Belle And Sebastia… More »

Watch Kacey Musgraves Debut “Family Is Family” On Seth Meyers

Kacey Musgraves, the uncommonly great young pop-country singer-songwriter, is about to drop her sophomore album Pageant Material on the world, and we posted her charming video for “Biscuits” yesterday.

Watch Father John Misty Perform Two Honeybear Tracks On Seth Meyers

The last time Father John Misty was on a late-night show, he brought along canned laughter to announce the release of I Love You, Honeybear on Letterman. A lot has changed since then — Honeybear was well-received, and he’s in the middle of a sold out tour. This means he didn’t need to rely o… More »

Will Butler continued his late-night show circuit that began in March on Letterman with an appearance on Seth Meyers last night. He performed two more tracks from his debut solo album, Policy.

Watch Twin Shadow Cover Sade With Zoe Kravitz On Late Night, First Performance Since Bus Crash

A couple of weeks ago, Twin Shadow’s tour bus got into a bad multi-vehicle crash outside Denver. A lot of people were hurt. Frontman George Lewis Jr. had to have reconstructive surgery on his hand, and drummer Andy Bauer remains hospitalized. The band had to cancel the rest of their tour, of course, but Twi… More »

Like fellow late-’70s UK legends Wire, pop-punk progenitors Buzzcocks are still out there touring, recording, and sounding as vigorous as ever. They proved it with a visit to Late Night With Seth Meyers to perform “Keep On Believing” from their 2014 album The Way. They tacked on the Singles Going Steady classic “Ever Fallen i… More »

Watch The Mountain Goats And The King Ad-Rock On Seth Meyers

There’s this great thing that happens in the rare event that the Mountain Goats get to play a late-night show. At some point during the performance, frontman John Darnielle will look over at bassist Peter Hughes, and they’ll exchange one of those “holy shit, we’re getting to do this” looks. It’s the best. Today, the… More »

Watch A Beautifully Lit Purity Ring Play “Begin Again” On Seth Meyers

Purity Ring got a new light setup! The best thing about the duo’s live shows, up until now, has been the crazy brass tendrils of light that Corin Roddick has been using. Last night, though, Purity Ring were the musical guests on Late Night With Seth Meyers, where they performed “Begin Again,” the incandescent single… More »

Watch Sleater-Kinney Roar Through “Price Tag” On Seth Meyers

In the past few weeks, the best mornings have been the ones where we get to start things off watching Sleater-Kinney play some late-night show or other. Since the band came back with their triumphant return No Cities To Love, Sleater-Kinney have already played Letterman and Conan. Last night, they served musical-guest duties on LateMore »

Tracee Ellis Ross Wishes Kanye Hadn’t Revealed Her Address

Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross (who is the daughter of Diana Ross for those who don’t know) is in New York for Fred Armisen’s Lipstick Makers All-Star event, so naturally she dropped by Late Night With Seth Meyers where Armisen is the bandleader. More »

Watch J Mascis Cover Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” On Late Night

Back in 2013, Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis released a solo cover of Mazzy Star’s 1993 soft-focus torch-song classic “Fade Into You“; it was a limited-edition 7″ that came with Mascis’ personalized sneakers, so don’t feel bad if you missed it. Last night, Mascis played the song for NBC cameras. Mascis was the musical guest… More »

Watch Sturgill Simpson’s Victorious Visit To Late Night With Seth Meyers

Sturgill Simpson is moving up in the world. Besides the honor and glory that comes from cracking Stereogum’s list of the year’s best albums, Simpson was recently nominated for a Grammy, and our own Tom Breihan notes that the country singer’s upcoming Charlottesville, Virginia show sold out two months in advance after being upgraded from… More »

Watch Interpol Brush The Snow Off On Seth Meyers

A week ago, Interpol were trapped on their tour bus in a Buffalo snowstorm. Last night, they were on TV. Interpol had already been booked to play Late Night With Seth Meyers, and I’d like to imagine that they would’ve hooked up a webcam and done their performance remotely if they hadn’t been able to… More »

Last night, Mary Timony’s badass garage rock power trio Ex Hex made their late-night TV debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers, and banged through two of the songs on their ridiculously fun debut album Rips.

Watch Jenny Lewis’ Smooth, Self-Assured Seth Meyers Performance

Late Night With Seth Meyers doesn’t have all that many musical guests, but Jenny Lewis, the former Rilo Kiley leader, was on the show last night.

Watch Jessie Ware Sing The Hell Out Of “Say You Love Me” On Seth Meyers

Jessie Ware’s slow-burning soul ballad “Say You Love Me” is both my favorite song on her very good sophomore album Tough Love and one of my favorite songs of the year. Last night, Ware was a musical guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers, and she sang a warm, deeply felt version of the song,… More »

Watch The Both Bring The Hooks To Seth Meyers

The Both, the still-fresh duo of Aimee Mann and Ted Leo, released a pretty great self-titled album of spirited, assured power-pop earlier this year. And every time they show up on late-night TV or drop a new music video, it’s a reminder of how sharp and polished a hook-machine these two are, both together and… More »
