Watch Future Islands’ Sweat-Soaked Rendition of ‘Lighthouse’ on ‘Austin City Limits’
Samuel T. Herring's shirt perspiration alone earns our seal of approval
Austin City Limits continues its 40th-season celebration this weekend with a televised performace from synth-pop growlers Future Islands. Before that, however, we’re premiering a web-only bonus track not included on the upcoming broadcast: Samuel T. Herring & Co. schvitzing and howling their way through “Lighthouse,” taken from their rightly loved 2014 release, Singles. Watch the Baltimore-based quartet tear through their set above, stay tuned for the ACL special airing on Saturday, January 17 on PBS (for times, check your local listings), and look forward to more weekends this and next month featuring performances from Jenny Lewis, Ryan Adams, J. Roddy Walston & the Business, the Black Keys, and more.
