Joanna Newsom Performs ‘Sapokanikan’ and ‘Anecdotes’ on ‘Kimmel’

It’s been a few months since Joanna Newsom released the lovely, approachable Divers, but we’re certainly not going to complain if she wants to keep touring the late-night circuit. Newsom was the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, where she performed Divers tracks “Sapokanikan” and “Anecdotes.” Leave it to Newsom and her band to demonstrate that the recorder is a beautiful instrument, not just a way to distract grade-schoolers.
