Sky Remains the Same As Ever
This is a nearly two-hour document of the recording sessions for 2006's "You Are There", and the several world tours that followed it's release. In addition to the dozen live songs documented in all their sweaty fury, the film captures the decidedly less glamorous aspects of being an underground rock band from a foreign country (Japan), expressing sentiments through body language out of necessity, and driving lots and lots of driving. Most effectively, the film displays the friendships that have made Mono's journeys enjoyable, and the fanatical dedication that has made it all possible. RIYL Explosions in the Sky, Neurosis, Mogwai, Jesu, High on Fire, Boris, and Isis.
