Artist: Explosions In the Sky
Album: Take Care, Take Care, Take Care
Label: Temporary Residence Ltd
Comments: Six tracks of epic and cinematic post-rock on Explosions In the Sky's latest record, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. With most songs hitting about 8 minutes (one track is three and a half, and the second-shortest is seven), Explosions In the Sky take their time creating epic, inventive post-modern instrumental odysseys. Vocals only feature occasionally, and when they do, they act like just another instrument, adding to the ambience rather than dictating it; instead, guitars and drums set the tone and additions like Japanese singing bowls layer into the sound nicely. Overall, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care is a highly artistic and epic record; start with tracks 3, 5 and 6.
