Notes: **September Record of the Month for Vinyl Me, Please** We’re coming up on the 10 year anniversary of Explosion in the Sky’s masterpiece “The Earth in Not a Cold Dead Place” (Nov. 4th, in case you’re curious) and it’s an album that has not only stuck with us, but has continued to overwhelm us since we first heard it. If you haven’t heard this record before, or haven’t heard it in awhile, then get ready to get wrecked. Called their “attempt to write love songs” by guitarist Munaf Rayani, this record captures moments few others have and they do so with pure instrumentation, making this even more of an anomaly and treat. This should get you ready for everything Autumn has in store for you quite nicely.
