Fourth from American post-rock instrumentalists
Those tempted to believe that geography plays a sizeable part in determining any band’s sound may be forced to reconsider the theory by Explosions In The Sky. Their vast, quasi-classical-cum-post-rock symphonies possess a dramatic, crystalline beauty suggestive of mile-deep glaciers that aligns them most obviously with Sigur Ros, but this quartet hails from Texas. All Of A Sudden… rather falls under the shadow of Mogwai and Godspeed! You Black Emperor, but there’s ample majesty in its climactic moments to recommend it.
