Explosions In The Sky - Live on Conan

Here’s another great band from Austin that I’m now only hearing about after being away for two years, Explosions in the Sky. In my defence, while I’ve heard of these guys, they’ve only been putting out discs since 2000, so I haven’t missed that much, but they are very good. Think of Godspeed You Black Emporer and Mogwai; two great tastes that taste great together. Here’s their appearance on Conan O’Brien with them doing Welcome, Ghosts. They had to be quick with this one, as most of their songs are much longer, but still they do a good job at it and it’s a great intro for the unconverted. For other samples there’s a live in the studio performance from 2000 at KVRX in Austin or a really great show from 2004 on Internet Archive. After that, go buy some CDs.
