The amazing instrumental rock band from Austin, Texas featuring Chris Hrasky – drums
Michael James – guitar/bass, Munaf Rayani – guitar, Mark Smith – guitar.

According to Wikipedia "The band has garnered popularity beyond the post-rock scene for their elaborately developed guitar work, narratively styled instrumentals, what they refer to as "cathartic mini-symphonies," They also have been keeping busy scoring soundtracks for TV/Film most notably "Friday Night Lights" "Prince Avalanche" and "Lone Survivor"
This is a mix of tracks I've been working on since 2011 featuring tracks from 2000 - 2013 two versions one with minimal station id's and one with just the music. So close your eyes and drift away into the world of Explosions In The Sky
