When I say post rock, I'm thinking of bands like Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, and Godspeed You Black Emperor. Those are the top 3 in my mind. I'm pretty much looking to find more post rock type bands. Any recommendations?

HUGE FAN.

Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Sigur Rós, Múm, Mono (Japanese post-rock)... yadda yadda. Not going to prove my "scene-ness"

Great to see a fellow fan.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Mogwai seems cool.
Does anyone know how Mogwai are live? I'm going to see them tomorrow, so was just wondering.

Yeah, get some Pelican in you. One of the few post-rock bands that retained my interest.

Recommendations? People have covered a lot of stuff released in the past few years (apart from Grace Cathedral Park and Detwiije), but if you want some recent releases, check out the Belegost/The Sea, Like Lead split and Russian Circles 'Enter', and look out for 'Give me beauty... give me death' by Ef and 'If That Is What Is Being Thought...' by Té

how good are good are mono? i mean seriously just an amazing band. Can't believe i only own one of thier records. Awesome

as are EITS, definitely my two favourite 'post-rock' bands

edit: i am a absolute prick for not remembering Godspeed, i have Slow Riots for the New Zero Kanada Ep and it's just. wow. 'Totally' just had a 'moment' listening to it now. Gorgously epic and powerful

I concur; Spiderland is possibly the greatest record of all time.

The only band that come close for me are ISIS, and although they are technically post-metal, you could do worse than check them out. Their album Oceanic is immense.

ISIS are epic. Seriously. Oceanic is awesome, but Panopticon really shows their maturity. And it's got a really creepy theme to it.

Isis are not post rock. But yes they do kick ass.

Lately, I've been digging (in terms of post rock): Red Sparowes, Mono, Sigur Ros, Explosions, ...Of Sinking Ships, and 65daysofstatic

I've heard them described as post-metal, which is really the same thing to metal as post-rock is to rock... related, at least. Red Sparowes are an Isis sideproject anyway, so if he digs the Sparowes, he might like Isis

65daysofstatic are great.

Love em to bits.

God Is an Astronaut is another cool post-rock band that hasn't been mentioned. Plus they're Irish.

Um... didn't any of you people read his post where he said he already knew and liked Mogwai, EITS, and Godspeed? You can stop suggesting those bands now. (This is not directed at one person, more like 8 of you.)

I do love Mogwai more than anything!

right then if we're talking reccomendations

www.myspace.com/yndihalda just abso-postively awesome in everyway. Superbly epic and beatiful with the prentiousness to match as well. A blend of violins, guitar bass and drums erupt into this wonderful mix of post-rock glory.

Just make sure that before you search too much you listen to Slint's Spiderland and Talk Talk's Laughing Stock. Those are the fathers of Post-Rock.

Besides that I'd reccomend Tortoise, Sigur Ros, A Silver Mt. Zion, and others... I'm coming up short.

I'm going to see a silver mt. zion the 28th, yar. It'll be my first post-rock show (heh.. that sounds funny). With a band called 'Ant Yeti Ant' who i've never heard of.

that reminded me of this:



i've got tickets to see them on the 25th. bought them the second they went on sale.

i was going to go see both their shows in chicago, but it's 21+, and i spent most of my money to go see sigur ros for the second time in chicago a few months back

I just checked the tour dates, and ASMZ is going to Victoria but not Ottawa. WTF Ottawa is like 10 times bigger.

Don't even worry about it. Say whatever you want.
Thanks for the recommendations.
So far I've Saxon Shore and Yndi Halda have grabbed my attention the most. It's really too bad Isis have some death metal type vocals in their songs. They just ruin them for me.

Basically everything on that list is awesome.


I concur. Though I disagree with the actual ranking. I like one Samuel Jackson Five song and it's called "No Name."

Oh word, Yndi Halda and Gregor Samsa are pure sex!

I recommended Saxon Shore, go meeeee. (Okay other people did too, but go meeee!)
