Red Light Skyscraper – Take Me Somewhere Nice (Mogwai Cover – played on smartphone apps)

During lockdown, Italian instrumental Post-Rock group Red Light Skyscraper, separated by quarantine, have recorded this excellent cover of the Mogwai classic Take Me Somewhere Nice. It’s quite amazing, especially considering the limitations of these apps.

Elsewhere on their YouTube channel, Red Light Skyscraper have been killing time in quarantine by making this brilliant cover of Quiet by This Will Destroy You. The idea this time is that the recording is composed of just 1% performance & 99% editing. It sounds great.

Before I saw this performance on a Facebook group I’m a member of (The Post-Rock Appreciation Society), I was unfamiliar with Red Light Skyscraper’s work. After watching a fe of their videos I am definitely a fan now. I’ll be keeping an eye on them, going forward. Check out this excellent performance recorded in Bristol, 2019.
