Inventions
Continuous Portrait

Matthew Robert Cooper (a.k.a. Eluvium) and Explosions In The Sky’s Mark T. Smith collaborate once again as Inventions, presenting their third studio album Continuous Portrait. It’s the boldest and least characteristic work yet, at least in terms of what you might expect given their own work, but it’s hypnotic and playful enough to fit in with 2014’s self-titled effort and 2015’s Maze of Woods. 

Explosions In The Sky
The Rescue (Anniversary Edition)

Recorded quickly in 2005 and inspired by an incident on tour when the band’s van broke down, necessitating an eight-day stay in an attic waiting for it to be repaired, Explosions In The Sky’s fourth effort has always been something of a missing piece to many fans, never being commercially available anywhere after its limited mail-order release. That’s all changed now, with this first-ever vinyl issue. 

Explosions In The Sky
The Wilderness

The post-rock veterans return to claim their rightful position. The Wilderness is a reminder of just how grand, intimate and emotive Explosions in the Sky can be. Their instrumental, and experimental, rock is formed from tight, innovative playing and the dense interplay of textures and sounds. This is their first non-soundtrack album since 2011 and comes on very fancy double vinyl LP.

Explosions In The Sky
The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place

Well it's certainly not a cold place these days, far from it. Texan post-rockers Explosions In The Sky were typical of the early 2000 era for slowly building textures and screaming crescendos. See also: Mogwai, Godspeed. They had the titles to boot too. Musically this second album continues what debut Those Who Tell the Truth... started but with softer textures and twinkling dynamics. 

Explosions In The Sky
How Strange, Innocence (Anniversary Edition)

Recorded in the space of two days at the end of 1999, Texan post-rock heroes Explosions In The Sky made small but significant ripples in the underground scene with a limited CD run of their humble debut How Strange, Innocence. Twenty years later, it eventually gets a thorough double-vinyl treatment, with beautiful etchings and inserts. 

Explosions In The Sky & David Wingo
Manglehorn: An Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

David Gordon Green’s new film Manglehorn comes with a soundtrack from a band often described as cinematic in their own right: Explosions In The Sky. With the help of film composer David Wingo, they have created some really shimmering atmospheres, using a lot of percussive textures. The LP version is limited to 2,500 copies, so don’t delay! On Temporary Residence.

Explosions In The Sky
Take Care, Take Care, Take Care

'Take Care, Take Care, Take Care' is Explosions In The Sky's sixth album. An expansive and cinematic affair, the Texan post-rockers ramp up the melancholy in a series of six mini-symphonies. Although recorded in the dry heat of El Paso in the legendary Sonic Ranch studio, 'Take Care, Take Care, Take Care' conveys all the majestic calm of a deluge. 

Explosions In The Sky
Those Who Tell The Truth

Explosions In The Sky's second and breakthrough album 'Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever' was subject to a bizarre conspiracy that the group somehow predicted 9/11. The phrase "this plane will crash tomorrow" is printed in the album art inners and a rumour was spread that its release date was September 10th, though it was released on the 4th. Historical moments aside, the Texan post-rock group's second album put them on the map for making grand, uplifting and sweeping instrumental music. This one's an excellent starting point into the group.
