    EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY LIVE AT THE ELECTRIC PICNIC 2012 – THURSDAY, MARCH 14



    Call them cinematic, call them explosive, Explosions In The Sky are one of the most powerful live forces around. This set at last year’s Electric Picnic was proof of this, as they powered their way through their set on the Main Stage. The Texas outfit have released six studio albums, and show no signs of relenting – they are a truly special band.

    This set was recorded by RTE 2fm at The Electric Picnic on Saturday, September 1, 2012.

    Albums Of The Week

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – DAVID BOWIE & AUTUMN OWLS



    Any new David Bowie album is big news, but it’s made considerably larger when it’s the first new one in a decade. ‘The Next Day’ is a strong return to public life for David Bowie. There was never any guarantee that we would get new material from the reclusive icon, but ‘The Next Day’ is upon us.

    After a considerable amount of time touring and writing, Autumn Owls released their debut album ‘Between Buildings, Toward The Sea’ last year. Wasting little time, they’re about to release an acoustic version of this album under the title ‘The Long Way Around’. The band are on US tour at the moment, and play SXSW this week.
