i am a huge nerd for fireworks. and for explosions in the sky. what a coincidence then, when one year during south by southwest, explosions in the sky played to the backdrop of fireworks over town lake (pre-lady bird johnson lake). i am thrilled that they are opening for arcade fire this week. the austin quartet's "cathartic mini-symphonies" make for great study-to and vege-to music. i haven't listened to the tracks off of the new album, take care, take care, out this week. but in the meantime, here's a favorite:
"your hand in mine"
