El Ten Eleven's latest album, Still Like a Secret has appeared on Spotify. Excellent rip roaring bass/guitar.

Melodic, slow/fast, some vocals and nice use of the trumpet. Foxhole.

It has taken me a while to get into Tarentel. They sound as if they are jamming and it can be a bit repetitive, but when in the right mood the sound works.

Colin Stetson's New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges, on the Constellation label (which any post-rock fan should be familiar with).



Challenging and rewarding in equal measure; it's some of the most powerful music I've heard in years.


This is a step outside your usual post-rock instrumentation: For the most part, it's a solo saxophone, no overdubs or loops. Laurie Anderson appears with some spoken word contributions. Before you say anything about whether he belongs in this thread, give a fair listen to this video of him performing the first two tracks:

Outstanding. But I do not think it is post rock. Post rock is using the standard rock instruments to play progressive, experimental music. If anything I would class this album as minimalism. If you like it try the likes of Steve Reich, Philip Glass and Terry Riley.

NZ band Jakob now have some tracks available up on Soundcloud <http://soundcloud.com/jakobtheband/>.

This is instrumental music that you may find similar in style to Mogwai. 

Dynamic, impressive soundscapes.

Explosions In The Sky's latest album 'Take Care, Take Care, Take Car'. If you like Mogwai and vice versa...

Epic, just wonderful



post #296 of 493

Yeah, I have been enjoying the new Mogwai as well.  Good stuff.  Overall I still think The Hawk Is Howling is the better record, and I don't at all care for the "vocals" that are on a couple of the tracks on the new one, but still, lots of the record is really cool music.

I think that the vocals add a new layer to the music. Live the new album went down a bomb and the audience appreciated new as much as old. I was reading some reviews of the album and I think that with their whole output they could easily stagnate if they did not keep on adding. Post rock is a kind of limiting genre, unlike say prog rock.

I'm thinking that it's going to be an absolutely blistering show, I'm getting super duper excited.


Also, on the subject of the new album, The more I listen to it, the more I like it... IT'S GOOD! ;)

I am going to see ASIWYFA for the second time next month. They must hold some sort of record for being constantly on tour. Thanks for the link to the new album.
