“Missing the Light of the Day” (Live on KCRW) (Video)

    Analog synth fetishists always salivate whenever the guys from Air are captured on video, and this clip from a KCRW performance on the band’s recent U.S. tour is no exception. Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel are swamped by Korgs and Moogs and other ancient gear for this version of “Missing the Light of the Day” from Love 2.


    The band has stripped down to a three-piece for its current touring duties and the change suits them. This version of the song is beautifully rendered, with minimal vocals and delicate stabs of synth rising and falling in the mix—although the drummer may have the easiest job in the world judging from the brief times we see him on camera here.
