Lowercase Noises' single "Skylights" was made to accompany Knate Myers Photography's timelapse video of the same name. The video is an amazing piece of work you should take time to view on YouTube. It consists of 6000 high rez photographs of the night skies taken in the remoteness of New Mexico's VLA. When pieced together the photos appear like a video showing movement. With little light and air pollution at this location the brilliance of the sky is overwhelming. He would often stay up all night long at these locations documenting the skies. The song written as the soundtrack for this short video captures perfectly the images it is there to set off. Othling's guitar leads are slow and dreamy, the beautiful melodic arcs conveying exploration, travel, and a longing to be somewhere else physically. The drumming is simple but effective. Coming and going they lends a bit of a "marching" feel, an adventurous spirit. While the track is available at Lowercase's bandcamp, this is really one you must experience with the video. So search for it at YT or Vimeo and enjoy both images and music. It will only take 5 minutes of your life and you'll never see a more lovely presentation of God's creation. I have returned to the video often to lift my spirits and I hope someday there is a longer collaboration between these two super artists.
