Pre-Festival Thoughts:
The band occasionally sounds a bit like The Killers. Overall, they have a pretty good sound.

However, none of their songs caught my attention and I assigned the band a 6.1 out of 10 for their music and a 6 out of 10 for my desire to see them perform.

After Firefly released the daily schedules, I didn't know if I wanted to see PHOX (6.7 out of 10; 7 out of 10) or Bad Suns.

Ultimately however, the choice was a matter of convenience: Bad Suns were playing on the Porch Stage which was next to the Lawn Stage where Bahamas just played and where Hozier would soon be playing.

Above Average: 'Dancing On Quicksand'

3) Dancing On Quicksand
4) [setlist.fm: Matthew James]

Post-Festival Thoughts:
Sitting quite far from the stage, it was easy for me to disassociate myself from the performance and not hear the music.

In hindsight, this was a bit unfortunate, because Bad Suns have some solid tracks. In particular, I like 'Rearview', 'Cardiac Arrest', and 'Learn to Trust' (from best to less).
