Britt Daniel (of Spoon) played a solo set at MusicFest Northwest this weekend in Portland, and by the accounts of those who were there, he absolutely stole the weekend with his vibrant performance. Daniel debuted three new songs, playing with Janet Weiss of Sleater-Kinney on drums.

SlyOyster, who shot the video, reports that Daniel peppered the set with new tunes. In addition to the one above, he played “Writing To You In Reverse” (which has been making the internet rounds after being played at the Pitchfork Fest), and a new one described as “an aggressive uptempo number in the vein of their Telephono days — you could almost here the Pixies influence in the tune’s rawness.” Check out SlyOyster for more video and audio from the set.
