future islands live vid Video: Future Islands   Inch of Dust

Chicago’s beloved avant-garde label Thrill Jockey has been celebrating 20 years of experimentation in style. Back in September, the label threw a series of East Coast concerts in honor of the anniversary, and Future Islands were present for the show at Baltimore’s Ram’s Head Live. The synth-pop mad scientists are renowned for their live show, led by the intensity of singer Samuel T. Herring, whose presence our own Cap Blackard called “Shakespearean”.

In this live clip of “Inch of Dust” off 2010’s In Evening Air, we’re given an all-too-distant view of the band in action. Watch Herring beat his chest, witness how the crowd gets completely consumed by the band’s energy, and just try to deny that pure, sweat-drenched passion.

Future Islands remains on the road in support of In Evening Air and their latest album, On the Water. Meanwhile, Thrill Jockey will continue to celebrate 20 years with a West Coast leg of their anniversary concerts, plus a London shindig, with a December date in Chicago forthcoming. See both itineraries below, and be sure to check out our recent feature exploring the history of Thrill Jockey.
