Watch My Morning Jacket Bring Guitar Firepower To Colbert

My Morning Jacket stopped by Stephen Colbert’s Late Show last night to perform measured-then-explosive The Waterfall track “Tropics.” And while they might never surpass that classic Conan performance of “One Big Holiday,” this was revelatory in its own way. Nothing reminds you how good My Morning Jacket is more than watching My Morning Jacket crush a late-night TV performance. See it below, and if you haven’t read this excellent Ryan Leas essay on The Waterfall, do that too.
