Had enough Yeasayer this week? There’s one more stop on the Odd Blood media-saturated goodwill tour we’re checking in with this morning, that being the trio (plus drummer + multi-instrumentalist + light orb/display thing) braving last night’s Snowpocalypse in the city and bringing “Ambling Alp” to 30 Rock. (Part of a good one-two for Jimmy, who hosts Neon Indian tonight.) After the band’s track-by-track dissection of the LP posted yesterday, you know the song is about (and named after the nickname) of the 1930s Italian boxer Primo Carnera, a not-so-formidable foe of Joe Lewis (the Brown Bomber knocked him out in 6). And after this performance on Fallon, you know what Chris Keating looks like in a suit. (Which is to say, a better look than hugging a koala.) The A/V flips out of sync on this video three minutes in or so, we’ll update when there’s a better version. Have a watch for yourself, son (ugh sorry):
UPDATE: The Yeasayer remix parade continues with this turn from the Very Best:

Thanks for the heads up, Fader.
