From Los Angeles, the bass heavy, electronic of El Ten Eleven is post rock you can dance to. On 'These promises are being videotaped' the tracks 'Fat Gym Riot' and 'Adam and Nathan totally kick ass' are superb.
Cougar and their album Patriot, probably one of the best examples of what post rock is all about..........
The recommendations here are overwhelming... and I'm not exactly sure that's a good thing.
Well the recommendations keep coming.......Tristeza and Spine & Sensory, which is the closest to melodic easy listening post rock I can think of.
This is my favorite from the softer side of post-rock.
Coincidence, this is what I am listening to right now......
At the neo-classical/post rock end is the sublime Rachel's. Start with the wonderful
Russian Circles 'Geneva', PPPPPPOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWEEEEEERRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The metal driving guitar is phenomenal.
Good call on Geneva.
For lovers of Explosions In The Sky, check out This Will Destroy You's first EP Young Mountain
listen to track 5: Happiness, Were In This Together
Really great albums in this thread... Among my favorite post-rock albums not mentioned are
South Pacific - Constance
Trans Am - Red line
and my favorite math rock album is Slint's Spiderland. Very heavy but at moments awe inspiring.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor, 'Lift your skinny fists like antennas to heaven' has a really dramatic celtic, orchestral vibe to it.......
Tera Melos - Drugs to the Dear Youth EP
Essential math rock
YES! Good Morning, Captain is the greatest album closer of all time.
Tried Slint, but didn't get into them at all. However, Tera Melos and this EP is superb
