Red Light Skyscraper – Your Hand In Mine (air instruments Explosions In The Sky Cover)

You may remember a blogpost a while back showcasing some of what Italian Post-Rockers, Red Light Skyscraper have been up to in quarantine. The previous post featured a Mogwai cover using only smartphone apps & a This Will Destroy You cover which was 1% performance/99% editing.

This time Red Light Skyscraper have released a humorous & fun video of them playing the moody Your Hand In Mine by Explosions In The Sky on air instruments. I particularly like the use of sound effects in to enhance the humour. The Homer “Doh!” & the meowing cat are particularly funny.

Hope you enjoy this & be sure to check out their stuff on Spotify or YouTube etc. They’re tight & atmospheric so if Post Rock is your thing, then I’m fairly sure you’ll enjoy them.

Check their most recent single, Matisse, from last year.

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.
