Take Care, Take Care, Take Care by Explosions in the Sky (2011)
Kind of Like: Mogwai, Godspeed, blah blah blah
Genres: Post-rock, Ambient, Experimental
Today was a very big day for leaks. Here is the first of a few. I've really wanted to listen to this album before I bought the deluxe double LP. If you haven't seen it, take a look at their official website. Bands are starting to really realize one of the best parts of records is the physical ownership of it and how great they can look. This deluxe double LP looks like it folds into a house or something, and it just looks really cool. And $25 is not too pricey for a more well-known sought after band.
As for the music, I am just getting into the second song, and I've already heard "Trembling Hands" which was released awhile ago. So I am about two and half songs in. Their previous album "All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone" was a monster, and it would be very hard to top such a great release. From what I hear so far, this is a really good release. Explosions are a pioneer and a top tier post-rock band, so it's hard to imagine them releasing something disappointing. The ambience seems even further refined, you hear wailing guitars that sound like sirens in the background, church bells, and many other little details. I have to sit and listen to this and I may come back and write a better review, but for now, take advantage of this link before it disappears.
