Explosions in the Sky 

The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place

Published December 11, 2003.Explosions in the SkyThe Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place(Temporary Residence)Discovered after members of American Analog Set pushed their demo to a label rep saying it “totally fucking destroys,” Explosions in the Sky is a fantastic instrumental rock band in the vein of Mogwai and Sigur Ros.

Words are too clumsy to do anything but diminish. Music made for meaning, not a paycheque. —Matt Charlton
