Just a couple weeks after their acclaimed performance at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival, tUnE-yArDs made their national television debut (Monday, August 1) on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. With the addition of ?uestlove on drums and Black Thought even rapping a verse near the end of the tune, this song is brimming with unbridled energy. Let’s hope the spontaneity and utter joy of this performance will bring Merrill Garbus’ insanely creative music to a larger audience.  It deserves to be heard by everyone.
