Late Night Tunes

Frequently, I will look who the musical act is on the late nights shows, DVR them, and watch their performances when I get home from work the next day.  Letterman has had back to back bands I wanted to see with Adele and Monday night and Deerhunter on last night.  Adele sand "Rolling in the Deep" which is a truly great song.  I first heard it in Italy on my honeymoon when it came on German MTV.  Kate and I both really dug it and it made my January disc o'music.  She is a very powerful singer.  Deerhunter, on the other hand, were just weird.  Their singer looks like an anorexic Richard Ashcroft (The Verve), the keyboardist was dressed up as a mod vampire, and the drummer avoided any sort of eye contact whatsoever.  Not the worst song ever, it wasn't "Desire Lines" which I've been listening to lately, but it was ok. 

Jimmy Kimmel last night hosted Cake who played a song I have not heard before "Long Time" which might just make my February o'music disc.  Cake has been around a long time and unlike most bands who stay around this long, the quality of their songs does not fade over time.  Bravo Gentlemen.  Finally, Jimmy Fallon had Destroyer on last night.  This is the side project of the lead singer from The New Pornographers.  I have never cared for Destroyer's music but I figured I would give them another shot.  Nope, still don't like them.
