Taking Care

So Explosions in the Sky released a new album, titled Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, a little over a week ago (and we should have a review up soon, cough, Joey D, cough). The day of the release, they held a special event at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. Six artists each contributed an installation that represented one of the songs from the the album, with the chosen song playing continuously during the viewing. At the end of the night, EITS played, and I'm sure it was pure magic. Luckily, there were some amatuer filmmakers at the event and they captured it in a truly beautiful way. Take a look.

By the way, the album debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200. Though I'm sure providing the soundtrack to Friday Night Lights certainly did no harm to their popularity, I still find that a pretty amazing stat for an instrumental band.
