Alt-J set aside time in their Coachella-filled schedule to drop by Conan last night (April 18) and perform "Breezeblocks," the swirling second single from the Folk&B Brits' debut album, the Mercury Prize-winning An Awesome Wave. The U.K. foursome slayed the xylophone-plinked track, just as they did on Later... With Jools Holland last year. Limp social media stats be damned — frontman Joe Newman's elliptical slur brought a woman to tears last weekend.
