Amoeba Review

08/05/2013

Explosions in the Sky's riveting soundtrack work continues with the score for Prince Avalanche, an upcoming comedy starting Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch as a mismatched duo of misfits who spend the summer together repainting traffic lines. Explosions in the Sky match the solitude of the characters with a spare yet hopeful score. Individual tones are given room to breathe, while subtle acoustic guitar and piano provide support. A clarinet leads the poignant "Dear Madison." The band whips up a hypnotic concoction of acoustic arpeggios and digitized choirs on "Alone Time," akin to Art of Noise's quiet storm classic, "Moments in Love." There are also some really gorgeous songs on Prince Avalanche that could stand apart from the soundtrack, like "Hello, Is This Your House?," which evokes a faded seaside with its gently unfurling Spanish guitar and sleepy piano accompaniment. Stirring trings and harmonica make "A Peasant Like Me" a winner, and syncopated synthesizers and guitars launch the propulsive "Join Me on My Avalanche." And "Send Off" fittingly caps off the soundtrack on a hopeful note of jaunty indie rock. It's a solid piece of work from a band who knows how to pair subtlety with moving moments to create memorable soundtracks that support and augment their accompanying films without interfering.
