Explosions in the Sky and David Wingo - "Join Me On My Avalanche"

From the upcoming film Prince Avalanche.

This makes sense - David Wingo, the film composer who might have scared the shit out of you in the movie Take Shelter or totally charmed you in lighter-hearted fare, has teamed up with the post-rock group Explosions in the Sky (whose music is totally filmic) to make the soundtrack to the director David Gordon Green's new movie Prince Avalanche. We got our first taste of their collaboration in January, and here's another sample, "Join Me On My Avalanche." For a second we were really wishing it would be a cover / interpolation thing of Rusted Root's "Send Me On My Way," but this is just fine - that building crescendo that opens the track is truly magnificent, and we love that rollicking percussion heartbeat. Check it out - the film and the soundtrack will be out next month.
