Explosions In the Sky and David WingoTemporary Residence
Released: 2nd September 2016
Major motion picture score for new David Gordon Green movie starring Al Pacino; Holly Hunter. The vinyl format for Manglehorn is limited to 2,500 copies, pressed onto 100% virgin black vinyl, and packaged in a deluxe screen printed jacket w/ full-colour, heavyweight inner sleeve. Following their inspired collaboration for Prince Avalanche — the understated, underrated 2013 film directed by David Gordon Green — iconic experimental rock band, Explosions In The Sky, and renowned film composer David Wingo return with the score to another Green film, Manglehorn. The soundtrack reflects that same spirit, shaping abstract sounds into playful and poignant score. With barely a hint of guitar on the entire soundtrack, Explosions In The Sky forego the primary instrument in which their stirring scores for Friday Night Lights and Lone Survivor were built upon, opting to harness that same emotional resonance from an array of percussive instruments. David Wingo brings the same mercurial magic to Manglehorn that made his scores to Mud and Take Shelter so profoundly affecting.
