tUnE-yArDs and the Roots melt brains on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon'
The Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show, which is musically hosted by groundbreaking live hip-hop crew the Roots, has made a habit out of bending the rules of typical late-show musical performances and allowing artists to perform whatever -- and however -- they'd like. Hell, Odd Future made a whole career out of their set-storming Fallon performance at the beginning of this year, and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver used his first of two Fallon performances this year to eschew his new material all together and play a medley of Bonnie Raitt and Donny Hathaway songs.
Watch the performance in all its disjointed-yet-mesmerizing wonderment here:
