If You Haven’t Already Heard: Explosions in the Sky

Very similar to last week’s Weekender, this If You Haven’t Already Heard is more “how have we not covered this” than “hipsterish suggestion about something no one’s ever heard of.” That said, as we wait for the full force of autumn’s new music, surprises and whatever else, I’ve found myself looking farther back for noteworthy things I might have missed.

And that’s how we’ve arrived here. Explosions in the Sky. Four gentlemen. Instrumental post-rock awesomeness from Austin, Texas. They aren’t new. They probably aren’t widely circulated amongst your friends. They should be.

It all came about when we read they’d recently been working on their next album AND plan to hit the road extensively in 2011. Terrific news. Now, sit back, make it loud, be patient (these are compositions not intended to fit nicely between Clear Channel’s pre-planned commerical breaks) and enjoy the ride. Here’s a few to get you started.

And since I mentioned the upcoming live shows, here’s a glimpse in that direction.
