“Holdin’ On To Black Metal” (Live On Jools Holland) (Video)

    Is it possible that My Morning Jacket has never appeared on Later with Jools Holland? It is according to the archives, so the band made up for lost time last night by hiring a huge gang of backing singers to support them for this rendition of “Holdin’ on to Black Metal.” The Circuital cut benefits from being brought out into the open here, with Jim James tearing up some Crazy Horse-style guitar pyrotechnics at the heart of the song before returning to its central lyrical theme. Holland’s show has been known to increase the audience of bands who appear on it by a considerable margin, and this performance may just elevate My Morning Jacket’s profile in the U.K.
