Need some mellow instrumental music in your life right now? If so, then you’re in luck! Inventions, a side project of members from Explosions In The Sky and Eluvium, have partnered up with NPR to stream their debut self-titled album in its entirety a little over a week before its official release date. I’ve listened to about half of it so far, and it’s definitely worth checking out if you are a fan of either one of those artists (or just music in general).

Hear a New Single From Inventions (Explosions in the Sky and Eluvium)

Ambient post-rock lovers heard good news a little over a week ago when it was reported that Mark T. Smith of Explosions in the Sky and Eluvium’s Matthew Cooper teamed up to form a new band called Inventions. Their full self-titled LP is due April 1 via Temporary Residence Ltd., but you can get a taste of their sound now with “Entity.”

The single takes a dive into the ambient underwater with slow-motion cymbal crashes and echoing guitar. If you gave Explosions in the Sky’s score for 2013 film Prince Avalanche a listen, then this shouldn’t come as a …

ALBUM STREAM: Explosions In The Sky And David Wingo – ‘Prince Avalanche Soundtrack’

While I have not yet seen the movie (nor have I really even see an advertisement for it. Am I living in a cave, or is this movie not being promoted heavily?), the upcoming film Prince Avalanche has a soundtrack by composer David Wingo and post rock giants Explosions In The Sky. With Explosions being one of my favorite bands, I’ve been pumped to hear this new release. Now, we finally can. Entertainment Weekly is streaming the whole soundtrack exclusively here.

This is Explosions In The Sky’s first new material since Take Care, Take Care, Take Care in …

Explosions In The Sky Release Video For “Wading,” Announce Short Tour

Texas post-rock band Explosions in the Sky have scored the film Prince Avalanche, a movie starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch that will hit theaters on August 9. The soundtrack to said film will be out on August 6; today, Explosions released an official video for one song from the soundtrack, “Wading.” The pre-order to the soundtrack is available here. From what we’ve heard, it seems to be their most atmospheric material yet, though it’s always hard to tell something like that until you’ve heard every song with an instrumental band.

Talk about going from dormant to the center of attention. In the matter of a week, we’ve gone from not knowing when new Nine Inch Nails would come, to knowing the name of the lead single and it dropping early, to getting a firm release date of the new album (September 3), to the present, where we now know the details of Nine Inch Nails’ stadium tour, according to Pitchfork.

Explosions in the Sky have released a new music video today for their song “Postcard from 1952,” which comes off of their album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. The music video was shot and directed by Peter Simonite, a cinematographer on 2011′s Terrance Malick film The Tree of Life. The video is absolutely gorgeous, and the Huffington Post did a really great interview article with the band, which can be read here.
