As of now they're working on a Travels in Costants EP.
"No... Are they on the radio?"
"No they're not on the radio, they're better than that."
"Better than that? What are you talking 'bout?"
"As in, the radio sucks balls."
"What are you talking about? They play popular stuff that OBVIOUSLY doesn't suck balls!"
"OBVIOUSLY you've watched too much MTV and fallen into the trap that is pop culture. You, my friend, have an obscured musical taste. Let me give you some CD's to listen to - This is the good stuff."
Their albums include 'The Earth is not a Cold Dead Place'.
Their muisc syle is similar to that of 'Godspeed You! Black Emporer' (some people think, I think).
With a few exceptions, there are no lyrics in their songs. In my opinion, this makes great studying music.
Some people are turned off by wordless music, but I would encourage anyone to give them a listen, or any music in the genre for that matter.
Explosions in the Sky has recorded four studio albums and one EP, as well as the majority of the soundtrack to Friday Night Lights, an excellent sports drama.
I have seen them in Austin once, and plan to again later this year.
Their album "The Earth is not a cold dead place" was okay, and Im not trying to be a music snob by any means, but some of the tracks did get a bit repetitive...
