Tracklist: Explosions In The Sky - Trembling Hands

Uber-propulsive instrumental post-rock that isn't really post-rock because it lacks in longeurs what it makes up for in pounding, stratospheric intricate guitar riffs? If Explosions In The Sky didn't invent this shit they were first to leg it down the patent office. Trembling Hands is almost commercial by their standards, letting go and folding itself into endless MC Escher chord guides over Squiddly Diddly drums as usual but within three and a half minutes and with some subtle additions - the O Superman vocal sample loop and the gleeful headrush in the middle, to name two. Don't worry, they still eat most quiet-loud dynamic riders for breakfast.
