I still don't know what post rock even is despite listening to a fair amount of it.

Well if you listen to it, you know what it sounds like. The term was coined in a review of Bark Psychosis' album Hex (very good album), if I remember correctly. A lot of different sounding bands fall under the category of "Post-Rock", and I'm sure someone who was enough of a stickler for genre could easily break down those different styles into more sub-genres if they'd like.

Tortoise is best post rock :3


But holy shit, when This Will Destroy You went from run of the mill crescendo rock to balls out drone with Tunnel Blanket, I was blown away.

I would probably say my two favourites are Tigers Jaw and Empire! Empire (I Was a Lonely Estate).

I've gotten to a point in my life where I have no #1 band/artist. I could name a few artists that I enjoy more than other artists, but as i've grown older I am no longer able to pinpoint just one, while in the past I was able to.

Who knows that feel?




i listen to so many artists now that I can't name just one when people ask me "what's your favorite band?"

slipknot are actually just terrible, they're such a "holy shit i'm 14" kind of band. like fuck off mum i'm not going to school i have to clear the stone of leaves.

It's always Tool, but then again...Soundgarden. It's just too damn hard of a question, have to agree with TS.

why do so many people who claim to not have a favorite band think they're superior because of it? :*

Naww dog, Tunnel Blanket is their best.

And I think that one's called Young Mountain. It's better than their self-titled, but still...

Bitch please, it's all learning the chords to this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-BrIa2fO90

and playing them to a girl, with your bass and mids turned to full, alternating the tempo every now and then and then stressing some of the chord changes with a tortured look on your face.

By far the two who's given me the most inspiration the last weeks/months for my own singing, melodies and songwriting in general. Jeff Buckley and John Frusciante. I mentioned the latter earlier.

Jeff Buckley is one of those guys I wish I had another 5-6 albums by. Grace is...decent. Some amazing songs but the best ones are covers. Corpus Christi Carol and Lilac Wine are two of the prettiest gloomiest songs I have heard in a long time but that's just him in one way but not his own written songs.

I need to listen to some of the posthumous stuff by him but I'm afraid I'm not going to like it that much. His voice however is absolutely brilliant and I do find him to have one of the most soothing and prettiest voices ever. But as said in another thread. He's a very mediocre songwriter. The songs are boring 90's grunge/punk which does not fit him at all.

I don't still have a favorite band because I've played trough the discographies of my favorites so many times that I've worn them out. Pink Floyd held the spot for the longest though.

I sort of had a favorite for awhile. Then I realized that I was being lame and started just listening to music...because it's music, not because my "favorite" band made it.

I was going for the "be hipster as possible" response.

Anyway, I had a favorite band (Metallica), but I grew out of them. Now, I just like specific types of music really. I like specific bands still, but it's hard for me to pick a favorite.

It would probably be Radiohead.
But my favourite musician would have to be John Frusciante.

uhm, not really, I guess.
I would say maybe Fugazi, b/c they were so good for so long & I find their ethic very inspiring. like, not just their "political stance", but the way they operated.
Sleater-Kinney also mean a lot to me, b/c incessantly listening to their discography helped me through a pretty shitty period a couple years ago. & of course Jawbreaker are a perennial top artist.

Loveless & Marquee Moon are my favorite albums, so My Bloody Valentine & Television are both up there (but less so with Television, b/c they were short-lived).
Wire is probably my biggest musical influence right now.
Screaming Females are my favorite currently active band.
The Minutemen are another huge influence, for the same reasons as Fugazi.
Mary Timony for the same reasons as Sleater-Kinney.
The Ramones & The Velvet Underground & Nico & The Smiths are up there, too.


You have bloody fantastic music taste. I love you

The Black Dahlia Murder for sure then closely followed by The Mars Volta. I've always considered TBDM to be my favourite band from as far back as like 2007/2008 but it's only more recently I've gotten into the Mars Volta.

I don't think I've ever had ONE artist that I'd label the absolute favorite. I've always had about 5, and I'm pretty sure they've stayed the same for most of my life so that should count....

the pillows
the Beatles
Tokyo Police Club
Bob Marley
Asian Kung-Fu Generation

There was one point where the pillows seemed like my absolute tops, they were pretty much all I listened to when given the chance to listen to music.
