 I just want to say that crescendo-core is possibly the best subgenre identifier ever.

 The last Explosions In the Sky album came out last last Fall. Factchecker!

 As a fan of EitS, I’m familiar with the two releases that the group has put out since 2003 on Temporary Residence.

The first, an LP for the Travels in Constants series, is (as far as I’m aware) only available to subscribers. As such, it’s a limited edition release available to people who have made the plunge to subscribe to the series before the line-up of releases is even announced. While boilingboy may have been luckily prescient, most fans of the group I’d wager were not. Further to the point, the release was recorded quickly (an anomaly for the band) and would probably never have been released by the band as an official LP, as band members have claimed in interviews that there definitely things that they aren’t wild about (although they may try to embrace some of the methods of its recording in their forthcoming LP). To call this an official release, when it can’t be found in stores, is a reach at best.

The second, How Strange, Innocence, is a reissue of a demo whose original pressing was only a few hundred CD-Rs and recorded in 2000.
