My Morning Jacket Release “Holdin On To Black Metal” Video

My Morning Jacket released their video for “Holdin On To Black Metal” and it seems to carry that quirky sorta brand the band has been able to maintain now, a mix of serious musicianship, craftsmanship and skilled playing with throwback swampy eclectic Southern rock. Or something like that. Plus it’s a bit spooky in its premise as well, sort of like that Toro y Moi video I posted earlier today.

The video has footage from this year’s Bonnaroo Music Festival and you’ll see how they were able to take such recent footage and throw together their animation and crazy special effects in time. The band is currently on tour and plays tonight in St. Louis.
