Peel Session: Explosions In The Sky (2004)
Now i'm not actually that huge a fan of Explosions In The Sky. Despite being quite a post-rock fan (though I prefer the more hectic and noisy stuff to the more reflective), they've never really jumped out at me as being much more than another Mogwai/Godspeed derivative. I have given them a chance, and people say that live they would probably convert me, but alas as yet it just ain't happened. So yeh, not a big fan, but I'm feeling very ill and tired tonight and so don't have a lot of time to do a bigger post, and I also know that a lot of people liked the other session by them that I put up, aaaaand I also know a lot of people were mega disappointed by their recent European tour cancellations. So! Consider this a peace offering, thou fans of the Explosions. It was recorded in February 2004 and was the second of the bands two sessions. As ever, I hope you enjoy them!
