Post-Rock & Soundtracks

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Listen to some post-rock music on this New Sounds program.  Hear a collaborative film score by the Austin, TX band, Explosions in the Sky, who, together with David Wingo, have made the soundtrack to the independent film “Prince Avalanche.”  It’s a step back from the dramatic swells of the “Friday Night Lights” era and never builds to those crescendos, yet still works as a piece of aural cinema.

New Sounds

An Alternate Score for Friday Night Lights

Friday, May 27, 2011


To mark the last season of Friday Night Lights, the New Sounds All-Purpose Assistant has wheedled a way to have some of the music that should have scored the TV show- into a podcast!  Hear here this New Sounds go at scoring an episode (or three.)  
Sure, there is an expected inclusion, with Explosions in the Sky, and Efrim Manuel Menuck (Godspeed!) but get a listen to fellow Texans This Will Destroy You, Leeds, UK-based Vessels and the British post-rock band Codes in the Clouds.  The show was meant to be a thank-you note to the music supervisors in the guise of a “Recommended If You Like (RIYL) Explosions in the Sky.”  Get a load of that tremolo guitar, the shifting and swelling rockness of the instrumental slow-core.
