Well joined twitter for that exact purpose yesterday, and this guy randomly followed me. Glad i checked him out instead of just ignoring him, his music is great.

Doesn't have an album out yet but his albums sound studio quality. Looks like you can just download his stuff for free directly from the soundforge he links to.
Great music + Great quality + Free = Awesome

Well this has to be my favorite thread on Head-fi, can't let it die. My collection was getting really stale until i met Post-Rock. The best genre out there, i have not found a person who listened to Russian Circles "Carpe" and didn't say it was awesome.
Anyways Scott Holmes has his album for pre order to come out on March 7, my birthday, so guess what ill probably get myself.
Also Russian Circles got #9 on Metacritics best albums of 2011, truthfully the recording wasn't that good and it wasn't my favorite album but still a great album and if Post-Rock gets closer to mainstream the world will get closer to being a good place. Noone can argue with delicious sounded guitars, moving drums, and a open soundstage for the instruments to explore. Russian Circles have solved a few arguments and got the poker game back going when the older ones wanted their Oingo Boingo and Rush and we wanted anything newer. Seriously cant argue with good sounding instruments.

Don't recall how I came upon these artists/tracks, but I love them regardless.

"A debut album that is every bit as nod-along appealing as the best pop to have emerged in time for the summer season" - BBC Music

"Sans Souci" is a continuous piece of music that ascends and descends with ease. Articulate, virtuoso and surprisingly entertaining! - Clash Magazine

"In it's willingness to experiment, "Sans Souci" successfully earns every minute of it's run time." - Rocksound Magazine

"A hugely accomplished debut" - Kerrang Magazine

Well first off, hello new to the forum. Just read this entire thread, surprised to not have seen Elliot mentioned. False Cathedrals is one of my favorite records of all time. Very happy to see Slint mentioned, most people I know have mysteriously never heard of them, and I hang out with the type of kids who name drop bands as matter of course. If anyone remembers Doghouse records, I worked there in the early 00's, will have to dig out some of the rare stuff I have on vinyl and post some pics. Speaking of which, as I am currently in Bloomington Indiana, and worked at Doghouse, Chamberlain anyone?

 

Just dug through the records I brought with me, had to put the rest in storage during my PhD.

Again shocked to see some bands omitted:

Portrait

Envy

Arab on Radar

Combat Wounded Veteran

His Hero is Gone

Milemarker

 

Then stuff that I listen to that sorta fits with this thread, although not to the letter:

Forstella Ford

Saetia

You and I

Racebannon

Mara'akate

Neil Perry

Usurp Synapse

Holy Molar

Swing Kids

Hot Cross

Melt Banana

Light the Fuse and Run

The Assistant

Orchid

Bucket Full of Teeth

Clickitat Ikatowi

Transistor Transistor

12 Hour Turn

and many many more...

 

I really don't know where to place these bands, genre naming conventions stopped making sense to me after I heard someone call something "emo violence art noise" I always just called it emo, but I guess that word is probably a pejorative around this forum.

 

Well, that is it for now, love to talk music hit me up.

 

HI, hope to learn a lot from everyone here, so far it has been daunting but informative.

They just repressed Elliot- False Cathedrals on 180 gram vinyl, limited to 500 copies. Picked one up, sounds fantastic.

 

 Elliott's debut full-length, "U.S. Songs," was released in June of 1998 to critical acclaim while winning the hearts of the independent music world. After a year and a half of touring and songwriting, the band found themselves in Los Angeles recording "False Cathedrals" with accomplished producer/engineer Toby Miller (Wallflowers, Korn, Fiona Apple). Far surpassing and all but abandoning their post-hardcore roots, Elliott created a sophisticated and elegant rock album of epic proportions. Now available again on 180 gram vinyl and limited to 500 copies. Vinyl version includes free digital download of this record.

I've really been digging The Convocation Of... recently, "Pyramid Technology" is an excellent slab of noodly/somewhat technical post-rock.

This has been a grower, Grails and Deep Politics. I did not like it the first couple of listens, but the more classical/mellow style has really grown on me.

Indeed it is quite the album and grows on one quite strong.  Seems that Scott Holmes has released his debut album.

New album by If These Trees Could Talk was released this week. Personally, these guys are in my top 5 for post-rock bands.
