All of A Sudden, I Can't Wait To See EITS
I love this description of Explosions In The Sky....
"Explosions in the Sky is a quartet from Austin, TX making what they call cathartic mini-symphonies. Known for wildly intense live performances, their songs are sprawling, epic pieces that build and evolve, often over a span of ten or more minutes a track. Though decidedly non-commercial, Explosions in the Sky has built a large and loyal following for layering beautifully orchestrated melodies against passionate sonic chaos."
It makes me very impatient to see them again and for the first time since 2003. I missed their show a couple of years ago when they played alongside Four Tet during the Triptych Festival. I still can't get Arcade Fire's jaw-dropping performance from last week out of my head, I am hoping Munaf and co. can match it at next month's gig at the ABC, they have certainly got it in them. If anybody has caught EITS live on thsi tour please let me know how it's going.
In the meantime you can stream performances by Explosions In The Sky and Eluvium in Washington thanks to NPR.
