Murdoch is an effortless master of banter and was the most magnetic presence I saw on stage all day — flirting with the crowd, sitting with legs crossed on the stage’s edge, and pointing out that pretty much all songs are about sex. He also had some observations about Austin.

“Last time I was here none of those buildings were there,” Murdoch said, pointing to the Austin skyline. “What the [expletive] happened? Are y’all having loads of children or something?”

On stage behind Murdoch and the 13 other members of the band was a backdrop with black-and-white shots of Belle & Sebastian’s eight full-length albums arranged in a grid. Later in the set it was replaced with a couple of music videos accompanying a pair of new songs, “Perfect Couples,” which was sung by lead guitarist Stevie Jackson, and “The Tricks in Your Head Are Alive.” – [Austin 360]

The 2014 ACL Festival wrapped up its first weekend, kicking off on Friday night (10/3) in Austin, TX’s Zilker Park with sets from Belle & Sebastian, Outkast, Beck, St. Vincent, Sam Smith, Jimmy Cliff, Temples and lots more. Pictures from those sets and more are in this post.
