    No, that’s Yacht Rock.

    Actually, I shouldn’t say that as one of our letter carriers wears his hair in a reggae hair sack thing. Government rasta mon!

    No, silly. It's Rock music produced by one of America's largest cereal companies.

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor
    Tortoise
    Mogwai
    Explosions In The Sky
    Miasma & The Carousel Of Headless Horses

    ^These bands mentioned above are among my favorite post rock. I would also add 'Friends Of Dean Martinez.'
    Can this be the swan song? The final elbow?

    I wasn't sure this qualified as post-rock.I threw it in the ring cause i thought it was close enough.Wouldn't bother me if people said it wasn't really post-rock.I'm seldom sure about these labels and categories.

    Oh, me too. I certainly didn't mean to imply that you were wrong about them being post-rock, I've only got the shakiest handle on what it means beyond the obvious names myself. All genres are fuzzy as hell, anyway, and it's never wrong to bring up good music on any thread IMO even if it's tangential.

    ...in the same spirit here's a favourite of mine that is also probably a marginal case:

    The Mercury Program have always been one of my favorites. Got to see them live in a tiny club in Boston with Fin Fang Foom opening. Good stuff.

    Big Guapo and Miasma fan here. I'd actually say Elixirs is the Guapo album that gets closest to a post-rock vibe for me. It's a record that doesn't seem to get mentioned a lot, but I like it.

    Two of my favorites are Godspeed You! Black Emperor's F♯ A♯ ∞, and Kayo Dot's Dowsing Anemone with Copper Tongue.

    That's better than ours. Ours would fall over on their side and kind of rotate in a circle from a central point. An early form of break dancing, it was.

    There's been many threads mentioning this type of music, one of the early bands I discovered in this genre was GYBE (Godspeed You Black Emperor), there is a wide, wide range of bands to explore, many that have already been listed, one of my favs is also God is an Astronaut, they sort of bridge the gap between Post and Prog. A couple of other bands that do this are Human Factor (out of Russia) and Maserati (out of Georgia).

    Historically speaking, a band playing this style long before the term was coined was Dif Juz, although they only have a couple of releases, they are very cool.

    Also worth checking out is the Red Sparrows, Causa Sui, their label mates Papir, Parhelia, Cul De Sac, Pell Mell, there are just so many out there, you will be overwhelmed, try this link with samples: http://arcticdrones.com/staff-picks/...nds-post-rock/

    I will close with my current favorite band: My Sleeping Karma, I have 5 or 6 of their CD's and love these guys...!

    cheers...

    The nice thing you may like about post rock artists is bands like Tortoise and Godspeed... are instrumental, even though compositional changes aren't generally part of the mix
    thanx Bill, I'll check those out... right now I'm really loving this particular new album:

    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Mono from Japan is also interesting, especially when they work with an orchestra (a bit like the soundtracks Mogwai did):

    Roger Waters once said something like it was more important to have ideas as a musician than to be a great player, something like that. And Post-Rock for me had so many unique ideas. Even the cd packaging that a lot of these bands came up with were different. Love Sigur Ros' Takk which I believe was hand painted and it's etched. Some bands had almost no info while Red Sparowes and The Ascent Of Everest would have long song titles actually telling the story by these titles. GYBE had some weird stuff even right on the cd itself and they quote a part Jeremiah 4in Hebrew and English on their EP. Oh and the interview they did with Blaise Bailey Finnegan the third was such a great idea when they were in new York at the time. Putting that to music.

    I guess I lean to the apocalyptic stuff like Godspeed, Red Sparowes and The Ascent Of Everest but the explosiveness of Yndi Halda, Mogwai, Blueneck is awesome. Sigur Ros is another animal singing in a made up language those albums () and Takk are so ethreal and atmospheric. I like the heavy more straight up stuff like the one Ian said he just bought Russian Circles Enter along with Germans Long Distance Calling especially Avoid The Light with Katatonia's singer on one track.

    I used to love going for drives around here playing either electronic or post-rock almost like a soundtrack to the beauty of nature with the beaches, mountains and county side being the visuals. Just something about those styles of music often bringing out even more what I was seeing.

    Ohand I'm glad you chimed in Hugues I learned a lot from you back in the day. And it's funny you mentioned 2005 as the last of anything interesting from the genre as that year I have four Post rock albums listed in my best from that year.

    Enter and Avoid the Light I would consider essential for anyone who likes progressive metal, and are the best albums from both of those bands.

    here's a write-up I did after checking out the Velocities in Music guys do a "Deep Dive" podcast into Post Rock.
    http://allmediareviews.blogspot.com/...post-rock.html

    Explosions in the Sky, Swans and even Talk Talk I honestly never cared for (Kayo Dot somewhat as well, even though I love maudlin of the Well).

    And there are literally hundreds of bands aping the style, especially Explosions (new Russian Circles since their 2nd album, This Will Destroy You, Caspian).

    The bands who include other things like chamber instruments (Do Make Say Think, Broken Social Scene) or Samples (God is an Astronaut at 1 time, Nordic Giants, etc) are way more interesting to me.

    Here's a bit from an album that is one of my favourite things ever:



    Post-rock or post-something at least.

    I enjoyed that and the list with some bands I hadn't heard of.
    Put my words into practice this afternoon heading up the mountain listening first to Sleepmakeswaves then O.Rang before heading home listening to Thinking Plague. Okay the Plague are not Post Rock but me like.
