Well, I finally broke down and bought the album by Explosions in the
Sky called "Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the
Truth Shall Live Foever."(http://tinyurl.com/4b5v5y)
It's been a
while since I bought a non-classical recording, and this one is
definitely worth it! I have been listening to it late at night (on
nights I don't have to work) -- which is the perfect time of day to
listen to it -- and just surrender to all those moody instrumentals.
The album art is just beautiful, and I love the caption that
reads "there ain't no world but this one." (This band is after my
own heart! Below is a list of three of the six tracks from the album
I was able to find full-length soundclips to on YouTube.
1. Greet Death
2. Yasmin the Light
4. Have You Passed Through This Night?
On a sort of related subject, I found a couple of gorgeous timelapse
videos recently set to the music of Bach I want to share and think
Malick fans might appreciate:
Kommt, ihr Töchter, helft mir klagen
Wir setzen uns mit Tränen nieder
Looking forward to getting THE NEW WORLD Extended Cut DVD in a
couple of weeks!
