Vanessa Bayer Talks Truck Nuts, Groupies, and Ryan Adams With Norah Jones

Vanessa Bayer Sound Advice Norah Jones Puss n Boots Above Average

After sitting down for awkward interviews with the likes of Haim, Tegan and Sara, TV on the Radio, and Drake, SNL star Vanessa Bayer now gives Sound Advice to Puss n Boots, the alt-country trio of Norah Jones, Catherine Popper, and Sasha Dobson. The latest episode starts with a crack about groupies and predictably gets worse as Bayer, portraying media coach Janessa Slater, sings a Jewel song and touches upon Sunday Night Football theme music, truck nuts, and Popper’s stints playing with Ryan Adams. The worst comes when Bayer confuses Jones’ dad, late sitar legend Ravi Shankar, with a whip-wielding archaeologist who shares her last name. Check it out above, watch the rest of Sound Advice via Above Average, and pick up Puss n Boots’ debut No Fools, No Fun from Blue Note.
