Appeared: Saturday, Obelisk Stage
In one of the strongest performances of the weekend, Jim James and friends occupied the same slot as his friend (and fellow Monsters Of Folk member) Conor Oberst did the previous evening.
Similarly, My Morning Jacket chose a set of new songs peppered with old favourites, but unlike Oberst seemed to do a much better job of connecting with the audience. Jim James was every inch a twisting, hairy whirlwind of rock flinging himself and his Gibson Flying-V around with reckless abandon. ‘Holdin' On To Black Metal’, from recent album ‘Circuital’ and complete with fuzzed up Stones riff, sounded fantastic live, and ‘Z’s airy psych favourites ‘Off The Record’ and ‘Gideon’ also went across well.
Best Track: 'Holdin' Onto Black Metal'
