Explosions In The Sky

With a reputation for a scathingly intense live performance and a quickly sold-out CD-R demo, How Strange, Innocence, which was later reissued in 2005, Explosions in the Sky was touted early on in their career as the next phenomenon in moody and dynamic instrumental indie rock à la Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor! The quartet of Texas kids, made up of Mark Smith and Munaf Rayani on guitars, Michael James on bass, and Christopher Hrasky on drums, was signed for its first release on Temporary Residence Limited after half a listen to their demo, which was submitted by the American Analog Set with a brief note saying "This totally f*cking destroys." From that, they released their first six-song album, Those Who Tell the Truth, in the latter half of 2001. After a new record, 2003's contemplative The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place, and the 2005 re-release, Explosions in the Sky, who had by this time garnered a dedicated fan base, came out with All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone in 2007. The band also found some exposure by lending their emotive songwriting to the soundtracks of both the film and television series Friday Night Lights, creating a stirring soundtrack to the drama set in their home state of Texas. In 2011, the quartet got back to writing albums, releasing Take Care, Take Care, Take Care on Temporary Residence. Two years later, the band teamed up with fellow Austin resident David Wingo to do the score for David Gordon Green's film, Prince Avalanche. ~ Blake Butler, Rovi

I deleted your comment on their faith, or lack of, WHO THE F CARES! This is music, its a language, you're basically saying don't communicate or listen to someone based off their beliefs. Hope you realize your religion and beliefs are crap if you put people down for not believing in what you believe in. Respect people for their individual beliefs, don't respect people for simply following the other sheeple. Please do some soul searching and realize the errors of your statement. Love U all, even u

If music could represent how my heart feels (which I believe it does) towards praising God. I believe this sound is what my heart feels like. How great is life.

This band is phenomenal. Despite me changing so much over the years they still move me and I rarely listen to anything else. I honestly think they are perfect. Such intensity and communicatio n that I've only found elsewhere in classical music but this is so much better.

The World is Not A Cold Dead Place is amazing mood music, you just feel so much in what it's not saying, it's amazing. They basically use crescendo, decrescendo, cadence rudiments, and delay/reverb effects to create an incredible journey of sound. One of my top ten albums.

I find myself listening to EIS more & more as time goes on. Their work on the movie Lone Survivor hit home, as I spent time in Afghanistan were the events actually happened. These guys match the mood & the setting in their music perfectly. I find it inspiring & haunting at the same time. It invokes a very reflective mood when I listen to it, & I have flashbacks to my time overseas with my Brothers & Sisters-in-a r m s . Excellent band & incredible music. I hope to see them live someday.

If anyone ever needs an album to get them through a long workout (where my rowers at?), The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place is where it's at. Great pump up music for sport occasions especially crew.

Very nice. I picture my children when this comes on. Just random, fun times, and the little things they do that show me how I am as a Father.

The driving, complex nature of this body of work makes it fit very nicely into our drawing studio play list; thanks for the contemporary sound track that resonates with this southern California back drop completely.. .
