Explosions In The Sky
WebsiteExplosions In The Sky
Those knocked flat by the instrumental washes of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Mogwai also take great joy in the epic grandeur of Explosions In The Sky. A bit more optimistic than some wall-of-noise peers, EITS remains jarring in its tendency toward post-apocalyptic bombast—not that the band fails to walk in line with beauty on occasion. Recorded with producer John Congleton, the band’s latest, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, contains beauty in multitudes. The organic busting and blooming of tracks like “Postcard From 1952” and “Be Comfortable, Creature” doesn’t exactly flip the script on past EITS efforts—though “Trembling Hands” throws a pair of curveballs with its insistent, wordless vocals and three-and-a-half minute running length.
