Hopefully my two post rockers on this forum find this thread so I’m not just talking to myself. And I invite anyone else to sample said music and join in the conversation.
You saw them??? I hate you! They’re not coming anywhere to Ohio on the current tour.
Actually I emailed them and I got a response from Munaf Rayani about it. He just said they would try to come Ohio sometime soon so hopefully he does. You know you’re not a popular band when you respond to me.
And Yet And Yet is probably their best cd, although I’ve heard that the new one is better so I’ll be listening to it on christmas day. Their older stuff is good but a little more laid back. If you want another cd by them sometime I’d go with Goodbye Enemy Airship.
Yeah, I’m not that crazy about Godspeed. I like Silver Mt. Zion more, even though they’re basically the same band.
So, here’s the big list of bands. Feel free to add anything I don’t mention, I love hearing about new stuff.
Post Rock -
Tortoise. THey’re the originals, TNT is my favorite by them. They’re similar to Do Make Say Think I guess. Pretty jazzy and funky.
Slint. They’re ok. I don’t know that I would buy anything from them.
Sigur Ros. Of course! Most beautiful music ever. See my avatar.
Other indy music -
Modest Mouse. I like them.
Mineral. Good emo music. See also: American Football.
Elliot Smith. A lot of acoustic stuff.
Porcupine Tree. The modern day Pink Floyd, many would say. They also sound a little like Radiohead, which is another band I like.
