Besides interviews, which are neither abundant nor scarce, 14 years of letting their instruments do the talking have constructed the impression that the Austin-based four-piece are that music, that the songs are a reflection of their personality. On Prince Avalanche , a collection of new music written by the band with David Wingo to accompany a film by friend David Gordon Green, Explosions in the Sky are wiping the slate clean in terms of expectations.
Wingo , a frequent collaborator with Green , brings a subdued ambience to the table, reigning in Explosions in the Sky 's crescendo-laden sonic expanses without subduing their plaintiveness, giving the whole album a feeling that's more contemplative than cathartic.
Conversely, the Austin quartet add a sense of gradually building momentum to Wingo 's quiet drone. This shared sense of influence not only makes for a very thoughtful and well-balanced pairing from the two artists, but as the score for a film about two brothers working in solitude while painting lines on a country highway, this feeling of meeting in the middle feels especially appropriate.
For fans of Explosions in the Sky , Prince Avalanche is a pretty different album from any of their other work, and even though the band has made many an appearance on soundtracks, this feels like the first time their typically widescreen sound has really changed to fit the material, rather than the material fitting their sound.

Much like the film, the soundtrack stitches dozens of tiny moments of heartfelt brilliance into an emotionally resonant whole far more expansive than its intimate roots might imply.
Explosions In The Sky excel at making even the most mundane moments in everyday life seem downright revelatory. David Wingo and David Gordon Green have made careers out of pulling off similar feats in film. It was only a matter of time before these guys all collaborated, and Prince Avalanche delivers on the inspired expectations of such a union.
