Explosions In The Sky & David Wingo - 'Prince Avalanche OST'

Album Info

  • Release Date: August 5, 2013
  • Label: Temporary Residence
6 / 10 Prince Avalanche is a US remake of a recent Icelandic film, in which nothing much happens to two road-marking painters. It’s a vehicle for Paul Rudd to be self-consciously indie, so instrumental rock blusterers Explosions In The Sky feel oddly apt soundtrackers. That said, the 15 pieces here bear little resemblance to the quartet’s normal moderate riffs and telegraphed crescendos – fellow Texan David Wingo can probably take credit for that. It’s not an essential listen but it does exhibit plenty of moody gravitas.
