Explosions In The Sky
was touted early on in their career as the next phenomenon in moody and dynamic instrumental indie rock √† la Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor! Since their formation in 1999 the quartet of Texas kids have released six highly acclaimed albums and gained a reputation for a scathingly intense live performance.
Still love it.
I think I could listen to this song for more than 24 hours straight.
A fantastic theme.
Sounds good with wind in your hair.
Beautiful song, and quiet enough so I can listen for animals around me.
It puts a strange spin on the evening.
Nice and light.
This song can make literally anything seem surreal.
I see no relation to the cucumber but this is a killer song.
My favorite band to listen to in almost all situations.
It's so heavy and maudlin, it makes me feel at ease with the depressing qualities of the world.
Although it would bother me too, I really can't stand it, especially as it's the only bad song on an otherwise almost perfect album.
My favorite driving song, long and full of changes and nostalgia.
One of the most perfect pieces of music I've ever heard.
Seems like the most incongruous song I can think of.
I don't play football but seems like it would take it to a new level.
I probably need to go jogging more.
My wife's favorite song.
Too personal, sorry!
I don't know, it just reminds me of being at high school and living at home.
Helps me drift and forget that I'm thousands of feet in the air.
An obvious choice, but damn what a song.
Would lend an air of intensity to the proceedings.
To lighten the mood.
To be honest, I am not a smoker anymore, but I think I would put this on first.
Makes it all feel like a dream.
I listened to this five times in a row earlier while doing so, so I guess that's the answer.
To wake up slowly.
Or really anything that has a beat and no vocals and changes a lot.
