Yeah Yeah Yeahs rained “Despair” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night (June 20), performing in support of Mosquito, the SPIN cover stars’ fourth full-length, which also happens to be one of the 40 Best Albums of 2013 So Far. Unfortunately, the trio weren’t supported by a gospel choir, a la their “Sacrilege” appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman earlier this year. Instead, Karen O and the boys kept the stage setup simple: guitar, bass, drums, and, of course, a shimmery gold suit with a Michael Jackson T-shirt underneath.
