In early 2000, our friends in The American Analog Set sent us a live cassette of an Explosions In The Sky show with a note attached that read: "THIS TOTALLY FUCKING DESTROYS." After half a listen, we couldn't have agreed more. Made up of four soft-spoken Texas kids, EITS makes music from the heart, for the heart. Steeped in sentimental melodies and dreamy soundscapes, each song lifts you in the air and carries you away, touching down on Earth occasionally to witness total destruction by way of their walls of cacophonous noise. Layers of chiming guitars become layers of metallic annihilation in the blink of an eye. Total silence to total violence, that's what we're talking about here, kids.
