^ Ef will indeed be huge (on a post-rock scale). Got their 7" and it was amazing, can't get their album though Asked Rough Trade a few weeks back so hopefully they'll order a copy in.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I'm not a massive fan of this genre, but I like the metal/post-rock bands like ISIS, Jesu, Pelican etc. alot.

A local band called Day For Airstrikes are worthy of a mention too, DFA played with Ef the last time they visited the UK and it was fantastic. Ef should be huge by now, there brilliant.


DFA are brilliant, I love them. One of my fav. post rock bands

Heard the new Isis album yet ? I was pretty dissapointed with it. Some great riffs again but the vocals are awful, on par with Fred Durst.

Good to know there music is being enjoyed, Im pretty good mates with them and they deserve a bit of attention for all the effort they put in.

The 'Widows' album is top-notch.

Secret Whale is brilliant, Widows is a much, much darker affair though.

A good progression though.

They have a mailorder service, Id enquire about deliveries overseas though as it may cost a little more.

Also moregood bands:

The Halifax Pier - Fans of Silver mount Zion/Sigur Ros
Six Parts Seven - Like Explosions in the sky
The Appleseed cast - Mogwai'ish but not scottish or as ambient

New Isis? I thought the album's out later this winter?

Edit- Just heard the myspace track. Yeah the beginning vocals aren't good. But when he shouts its alright.

Good song though, I liked the ending.

So have you heard the whole album? Are all the vocals like that?

sadly the vocals are like that for the majority of the album.

Saying that , It has its moments, still a good few riffs thrown in there but just not enough 'Panopticon' style ferociousness

They deserve WAY more than a "bit" of attention. 'Widows' is absolutely amazing. Definitely an underrated band.

I'm not sure whether I prefer SW or Widows, but they both are very, very good.

Side note: Seeing Russian Circles tomorrow night, w00t.

I just heard about Ef the other day, but can't find any previews of their music.

The Samuel Jackson Five are great.

God Is An Astronaut are probably my favourite, All Is Violent All Is Bright has been on almost constant rotation for a while.


I'm finally buying a copy of Alone by The Timeout Drawer. I've had it on my computer for quite a while now but I want to have the real deal.

I've never heard Ulver called post-rock.


Ulver's stuff is fairly diverse, and their albums go in all types of directions, from electronica to black metal so its possible that they might have put out something resembling post-rock, but I don't think it is quite post-rock.
#110
Damn. I don't know why I hadn't found this thread earlier.

My faves.

Pelican (I know, more Post Metal, but they're mentioned in the thread)
ISIS
Russian Circles (probably my favorite ever)
Sigur Ròs


That's all for now, though..... I'm using the thread as reccomendations, though. So, I'm checking out Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Slint, and Explosions in the Sky.

I prefer the metal post-rock to the indie-post rock.

Stuff like ISIS, Jesu, Pelican, Neurosis etc. I don't know why, I guess cos' it has a more epic and and apocalyptic feel to it.

But GSYBE and A Silver Mt Zion are good to fall asleep too. And Slint are good!

Slint aren't really a post-rock band despite what everyone says, they're math-rock.

As for Isis etc, they're post-metal, and I agree, I prefer Russian Circles etc to Explosions in the Sky and Tristeza.

i still don't understand how a silver mount zion can be thrown in with all the post rock bands. but i also don't understand why people still label bands post rock to begin with.

even if they are math-rock they were still a major influence in post-rock...
#116
The best, IMO, are -

Sigur Ros
Mogwai
Explosions In The Sky
65daysofstatic

Slint seem a bit too atonal to fit in with post-rock, they seem more like math-rock to me.

Has anyone else heard of the band Juno? One of their albums is really quality, and I'd say they are probably post-rock.

Oh, and I saw Mogwai at the Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh, for the tenth anniversary celebration. I've only been to 4 shows, but I think it will be hard for another band to EVER top that!
#119
I made a separate thread about this earlier, but look up Juno. Their incredible. I'm just getting into this post rock, indie thing so they might not really "be" incredible, but I think they are.
