As previously reported, Explosions in the Sky and fellow Austinite David Wingo worked together to score David Gordon Greens new comedy, Prince Avalanche, with the soundtrack due out August 6th via Temporary Residence Ltd. Already we’ve heard a sneak peek with last month’s “Wading”, and now they’ve unearthed a proper track in “Join Me on My Avalanche”. Fans of the two Texas compatriots should have an ear for the emotional builds here, but the Moby vibes (think “God Moving Over the Face of the Waters”) and the Steve Hauschildt tones (remember 2011’s Tragedy & Geometry?) flaunt that new car smell. Stream below.
Shot in Texas’ Bastrop State Park, as suggested by Explosions drummer Chris Hrasky, Prince Avalanche stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch as two workers on an isolated stretch of Texas road in a ”darkly comic, sparely staged yet emotionally complex Beckett-ian tale.” The film hits theaters on August 9th. Here’s the trailer:
