Explosions in the Sky are perhaps the most accessible of their post-rock peers: their gorgeous, cresting passages and elegiac multi-part harmonies feel neither under-embellished without vocal/lyrical accompaniment nor as overly ostentatious or contrived as many of their post-rock fellows can often sound. To be sure, even at their most unorthodox, the Texas post-rockers’ sound isn’t too far off from the left-field work of their distant alternative rock cousins (think: one of those long, protracted Pumpkins b-sides you thought no one else listened to all the way through). Even so, Explosions in the Sky certainly have a distinctive sound, one they haven’t digressed far from; not that they’ve had to. EITS puts on display a newly broadened musical scope that ventures far past the typically soft, tender soundscapes their fans’ emotions have surely begun to build a tolerance toward, instead appealing to their listeners’ more primal senses by virtue of a more hardened, visceral approach to their songcraft that makes for perhaps their boldest, most divergent outing yet. Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, indeed.
