Explosions in the Sky

The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place



Published December 11, 2003.Explosions in the SkyThe Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place(Temporary Residence)Discovered after members of American Analog Set pushed their demo to a label rep saying it “totally fucking destroys,” Explosions in the Sky is a fantastic instrumental rock band in the vein of Mogwai and Sigur Ros. Their epic soundtracks incorporate subtle hooks, moving toward peaks, never forget- ting it’s the quality of the middle that makes the end worth- while. Words are too clumsy to do anything but diminish. Music made for meaning, not a paycheque. —Matt Charlton
