Watch Joanna Newsom’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Debut, 2002 Music Video Cameo

First off, check out an abridged “Soft As Chalk” from the singer/songwriter’s ambitious new “triple” album Have One On Me. This aired on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night and I believe it Joanna’s US TV debut it marks her second American TV performance (see Kimmel ’05). According to @UncleGrambo,SNL’s Fred Armisen, Akiva Schaffer, and John Mulaney headed down to 6A to watch live. Those guys know.

If that comes down, try this Hulu:

Next, we travel back to the beginning of this week when Fleet Fox Robin Pecknold quietly posted his solo cover of “On A Good Day” to YouTube.

Finally, Tripwire has dug up J.New’s bloody music video debut, released years before we knew she was a method actress. The song is “New Obsession” by the band Pocket For Corduroy (Joanna’s older brother Peter played drums). Director Brad Oates was a 21-year old UC-Santa Cruz film student at the time. He blogs:

We had a great time chasing the band around the woods of Nevada City, CA and getting things done. Cut to today: Pete Newsom’s sister, Joanna Newsom, is now a starlet in her own right and getting quite a bit of press for her new album.

Acting!
