"The almost two-hour performance was mostly made up of material off the just released New Multitudes album, with a few songs from each individual's other band(s) (Son Volt/Uncle Tupelo, Centro-matic, Gob Iron, My Morning Jacket). All four musicians shared vocal duties and switched up instruments on the regular. Jim James (or Yim Yames as he's billed for this project) handled bass guitar for most of the night, switching to acoustic guitar when needed. As evidenced in a few videos, Yim was certainly one of the more energetic bass players I've seen, roaming, and jumping back and forth all night. His lead bass lines did not get lost in the mix, that's for sure. Think Flea with much longer hair. Jay Farrar led with his electric/acoustic while Will Johnson and Anders Parker switched off between drums and mostly electric guitar." [an LA review]
