Live Photos: The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die

The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die (abbreviated as TWIABP) remains one of those fleeting live experiences that put recordings to shame. Alongside fellow atmospheric rockers Explosions in the Sky, Caspian and Sigur Ros, TWIABP weld the finesse to expand a room into an audio kaleidoscope of reverb-drenched tremolo guitar and delicate acoustic progressions (with sing-shout emo vocals and horn accompaniment all their own). After releasing a revision of a six-year-old EP (Formlessness) and while recording new material, the seven-piece played Metro Gallery in Baltimore last Sunday, where Paste photographer Jeanette D. Moses captured the stirring gallery above.
