Avoiding AP like the plague, obviously. That's nuts though. Congrats to Sean.

I love GIAA, but they have a harsh way of talking haha. I do get their frustration, a lot of post rock fans can come off as snobby. And they're not aiming for post rock, at all.


I'm not crazy about the first album, but I wonder about all that remixing and remastering they're talking about. I thought Moment of Stillness had pretty good production, especially since the songs are so solemn.

This was very cool, and it makes sense to any GIAA (and EITS) fan. Direct album reference haha.

To me, Explosions in the Sky is terrestrial and we're extraterrestrial. They're embracing the Earth as not a cold, dead place, and we're saying it is. We want to go to a different universe, and that's what we're here to do, transport people there from this world.
Warm (EITS) and cold (GIAA).

N: Some bands, if you go and see, nobody would be moving, they'd just be standing there, and if you close your eyes, it's perfect - you could be listening to the CD - but people don't want to listen to the CD. If they want to listen to the CD, they go home and listen to the CD. If they want to see a show, they want to see a show. They want to see a performance, they want to see something exciting, they want to have a good time. To me, people are not having a good time if they're just standing there and going, "Yeah, he played that part perfectly." So it's much more interesting if everyone's enjoying themselves.

really liked that part, interesting interview
