The Week-est Link, Nov. 30: The Greatest Band You Know Nothing About
Here are some great videos to watch (sound quality not great, but will give you a taste):
- "Greet Death" (sounds like the modern death song of a Norse warrior)
- "The Only Moment We Were Alone" (captures the poignance of a fleeting romance)
- And the best song of them all, "Your Hand in Mine" (was on the Friday Night Lights soundtrack, one of the most powerful songs I've ever heard)
- The band's myspace page (has four songs on it of great sound quality)
If I could have one group write the soundtrack music for my life (there is no danger of that happening, don't worry), this would be the group. Music is a funny thing for many people. Many of us (myself included) confine ourselves to our narrow little interest group and never discover the beauties of common grace that are all around us. Well, I encourage you to discover Explosions in the Sky--innovative, unusual, haunting, beautiful.
