If you’ve never seen or heard Explosions in the Sky – or even if you have – you owe it to yourself to watch this video.  The band dispenses with vocals in favor of sprawling, intricate – and, at times, earth-shakingly heavy – arrangements that manage to sound like nothing else out there.  Can I get away with the phrase “sonic cathedrals”?  Well, there it is.  Sonic cathedrals.  Nothing else quite fits.  This is “Memorial,” the centerpiece of their 2003 album, The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place. Stick with it; the reward will come.  Holy cow, I love this band.
