Explosions in the Sky-The Earth is not a Cold Dead Place (2003)

2003 release from easily one of my favorite post-rock bands, Explosions in the Sky. This is another piece of flowing, atmospheric, triumphant, dream-like, ultimately uplifting and beautiful instrumental post rock. Beautiful, sweeping, swirling guitar parts, drenched with effects, to create a sound that is unmistakably Explosions in the Sky. I HIGHLY recommend all Explosions in the Sky's albums, and particularly to fans of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Sigur Rós, Pelican, Jesu, and even Alcest. Temporary Residence Limited.
