Woodland River by PoorGent

“The Mighty Rio Grande” is the fifth track of This Will Destroy You, the eponymous first studio album by the American band This Will Destroy You. It was released on January 29, 2008 through Magic Bullet Records.
The vinyl version of the album was pressed on red, blue and white vinyl and contains a quote from the television series Deadwood (“I may have fucked my life up flatter than hammered shit, but I stand before you today beholden to no human cocksucker”) etched around the center label.

This Will Destroy You, often abbreviated to TWDY, is an American post-rock band from San Marcos, Texas, formed in 2005. The band consists of guitarists Jeremy Galindo and Chris King, bass player and keyboardist Donovan Jones and drummer Alex Bhore. They typically compose lengthy atmospheric instrumental pieces, featuring layers of effects-laden guitar and a heavy usage of dynamics.

Their latest album, Tunnel Blanket, was released in May 2011. It entered the Billboard Heatseekers Album Chart at number 25.
