Austin’s Explosions In The Sky brought an abbreviated version of theatrical post-rock instrumental “Postcard From 1952″ to the Ed Sullivan Theater last night. It was their Letterman debut, and their host enjoyed it “a great deal.” Watch the performance below.

  1. munaf rayani! an ismaili on Letterman finally. high five amrit

  2. Very excited to see them at the Wellmont with The Antlers opening. A lot of epic music in one room.

  3. That was pretty cool. I do wonder if Letterman says he enjoys every band a great deal :P. But it was good. The only thing better would’ve been to give them 8 minutes instead of 4.

    • I get the feeling Letterman only hears about music by looking to his right and watching live bands everyday. From clips I’ve watched I think he sincerely takes note when a band catches him off guard or by surprise.

      Sometimes he’ll just make an obvious crack at the performer, I recall MIA’s Born Free performance getting an awkward Letterman comment.

      tl;dr – yeah he likes them a great deal for real

  4. I feel like an asshole for saying this but I just realized Explosions in the Sky are symbolic of how epic a circle jerk can be. I had plans to see Broken Social Scene next month but I will probably pass…All kidding aside these guy are immensely talented

  5. Real shame how they got cut short. Didn’t allow enough time to build… Should’ve refused the slot on principal, but hey, good exposure is priceless. Just didn’t do they justice… Anyone thinks WU LYF took their blueprint and tacked on a barker?

  6. I liked this song better when it was their last 50 songs.
