In case you didn't know, My Morning Jacket absolutely DESTROYED Merriweather Post Pavilion last Friday. Giving a performance that could have been powered by the fires of hell itself, the band coalesced into nothing less than a hurricane of sound and fury...that loves you.
Lucky for you there were some upstanding individuals there to capture the evening. Actually, "upstanding" might not be the right word, because we can't seem to stop listening to the show. It's getting in the way of stuff dude. Actual stuff.
That aside we're pretty vocal about our support for the taping community here and this time is no different. The act of recording in a live setting like these individuals do is an art form in and of itself, but the fact that they make record of a performance and then spread it around is simply a gift.
In this case, that gift is "Holdin On To Black Metal". I've always considered it a deeply silly, sorta failed song, but then Friday happened. There's no real way to convey the power of all those people singing along to the chorus, but hopefully this will give you a little hint of what it was like.
