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.
