If you like terms like “sonic landscapes,” you’re going to love the soundtrack for David Gordon Green’s Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch-starring film Prince Avalanche, courtesy of instrumental pretty-music-makers Explosions in the Sky. The Texas-based band, which is most well known for their contributions to Friday Night Lights (the movie), was apparently furthered inspired by football while recording music for Avalanche.
While watching the Super Bowl together, EITS drummer Chris Hrasky casually suggested that Green use the scorched landscape of Bastrop State Park in Bastrop, TX as the backdrop for a film. Green took the suggestion and ran with it, remaking the Icelandic indie comedy Either Way into an understated dramatic comedy starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch. In keeping with the low-key, under-the-Hollywood-radar nature of the film, Green tapped Explosions In the Sky and David Wingo to score the film. In the spirit of the filmmaking process, the soundtrack to Prince Avalanche is a casual affair, an earnest collaboration amongst friends recorded entirely in the living rooms of its composers. (Via)
