I'm listening to GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT. They are from Ireland and I'm suitably impressed. Post rock is possibly my favourite genre at the moment.

Give Jakob - Semaphore a listen here and see if you like it.

That's nuts, I just started listening to God is an Astronaut this morning, great stuff. Also listening to This Will Destroy You's debut album which came out recently

Safe in Numbers off their latest album, Solace is probably one of my favourite tracks ever. Absurdly atmospheric...

And I'm loving TWDY's s/t too. It's a lot more laid back than their YM EP, but it definitely works. The standout track for me is They Move on Tracks of Never-Ending Light, but they're all great ^_^

And browsing through the whole thread, anyone wanting to get into post-rock should check out enemyat_thesix's list, which has some excellent bands on it.

A band that I don't think has yet been mentioned are Mono. If anyone ever wanted to go and see one post-rock band live, they're that band. On record, I find their music has less impact (unless turned up) but is still worth checking out. Their neo-classical collab with World's End Girlfriend is however worth getting; I don't think I've heard a more beautifully depressing record.

I mentioned Mono in the first post...

Whoops! -pts for observation pour moi :/

Been listening to ambient-styled post-rock along the lines of GIAA recently: Hammock, The American Dollar, Emery Reel etc

Finally got 'round to listening to Joy For Eternity's album; it's not bad at all!

I like the idea of Sigur Ros, but I can't stand the singer, can anyone please reccomend me similar groups?

Stafraenn Hakon is remarkably similar to Sigur Ros but sings in English:

MySpace.com - Stafrænn Hákon - ReykjavÃ*k / Copenhagen, IS - Alternative / Experimental / Ambient - www.myspace.com/shakon

New album Gummi is good but is a virtual carbon copy of Sigur Ros.
