What Makes Explosions In The Sky A Must-Hear Instrumental Act?


TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

Why Bother?

Explosions In The Sky is a band that could put you to sleep, in the best of ways.

Their calming instrumental tunes are soothing, pleasing, and melodic.

There's no intense beats or grooves, just flowing guitars (Sometimes distorted to the max), and happy drums.

I used to listen to their album "The Earth Is Not A Cold Dark Place" every single night in order to get to sleep. I usually was lulled into a night-time slumber about halfway through the 3rd track on the album.

It made me happy.

If you are in the mood to do some computer work, or just need something to fill the background, then I recommend you give explosions a try.

In fact, if you just want to experience the music (like a stoner), then lay back on your bed with a friend (or spouse) and let Explosions in the Sky drift you away into another world.

It's really an experience unlike any other. Just listening to a CD is intimate and calming. You'll enjoy every minute, and will let all your worries and stress fall to the side.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
