The 40th season of Austin City Limits continued Saturday night with an hour-long episode featuring two of last year’s biggest stars: Future Islands and Sam Smith.

For their six-song set, Future Islands showcased material from their year-end favorite LP Singles, specifically “Back in the Tall Grass”, “A Dream of You and Me”, “A Song For Our Grandfathers”, “Spirit”, and — of course — the best song from all of 2014, “Seasons (Waiting on You)”. They also performed “Balance” from their 2011 LP On the Water.

Smith’s five-song set included his cover of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know”, his Disclosure and Nile Rodgers collaboration “Together”, and selections from last year’s In the Lonely Hour, specifically “Nirvana”, “Money on My Mind”, and “Stay With Me”.
