The first EITS album not produced entirely by the band, The Wilderness finds them working with long time collaborator (and Grammy-winning producer) John Congleton in a co-producer role for the first time, and the band's most ambitious songs to date branch into unexpected new dimensions accordingly: "Logic Of A Dream" lives up to its name, its celestial symphonic swells overcome by relentless tribal drum patterns that dissolve into a gentle Krautrock outro. The cacophonous washes that open "Disintegration Anxiety" resolve into a locked groove marking a rock solid midpoint of the journey, followed by a deconstructed ambient soundscape "Losing The Light." "Colors In Space" is particularly beautiful and brave, cycling through sublime atmospherics and motorik drive before building to a whiplash-inducing halt.
Arguably the most progressive instrumental rock album since The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place, The Wilderness is a bold, experimental work combining the EITS song craft that has sold hundreds of thousands of albums and tickets with the cinematic sensibility that has elevated the band to the level of regard and demand they enjoy as film composers. It is an album where shoegaze, electronic experimentation, punk damaged dub, noise, and ambient folk somehow coexist without a hint of contrivance-and cohere into some of the most memorable and listenable moments of the bands expansive body of work-"proper" studio albums and major motion picture soundtracks alike.
The progressive ambience of early Peter Gabriel, the triumphant romanticism of The Cure in their prime, and the more melancholy moments of Fleetwood Mac all inform the curious beauty of The Wilderness. The uncanny ability to reconcile the tension between discordant, nightmarish cacophony and laid-back, Laurel Canyoninspired folk-rock is a cornerstone of this album, and the center of Explosions In The Sky's remarkable evolution. If The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place was the defining album of Explosions In The Sky's career, The Wilderness is the band's [re] defining album.
Explosions In The Sky is: Chris Hrasky (drums), Michael James (guitar, bass), Munaf Rayani (guitar), Mark T. Smith (guitar).
In the trenches of recording their first full-length album, Detach, at the world-famous Sonic Ranch studios in El Paso, Texas, brothers Blair Dewane (lead vocals) and Ian Dewane (lead guitar), Mike Weller (bass), and Mike McGuinness (percussion) are right on the cusp of figuring out what it's all about.
They have the local accolades. They've opened for Chuck Ragan, Sixto "Sugar Man" Rodriguez, Deerhunter, Lord Huron, The Ataris, Bleachers, Built to Spill and Noel Gallagher. They've been an official showcasing band at SXSW. (Twice.) They've even gotten songs from their last album, an EP recorded by Minus the Bear's Alex Rose, featured on the shows Nashville, Bar Rescue and Shameless.
