    Explosions in the Sky’s Mark T. Smith and Matthew Cooper, aka Eluvium, have reconvened for a new Inventions album. Entitled Maze of Woods, it’s due out March 17th via Temporary Residence. The eight-track effort serves as follow-up to last year’s self-titled debut.

    According to press materials, Maze of Woods was inspired by the closing paragraph of Denis Johnson’s 2002 novella Train Dreams:

    In that paragraph, Johnson describes the non-verbal howl of a feral wolf boy, a pre-language that is yearning and instinctual; a statement of wordless distress and love. Maze of Woods is the product of two masters of their craft getting lost in the wilderness, ‘doing something that they don’t know how to do,’ and emerging with something wholly unexpected and beguilingly beautiful.
