I'm a pretty big fan of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Set Fire To Flames (which has some members of Godspeed...), Mogwai, and Sigur Ros.

I'm also in a small post-rock band myself. We don't have any recordings yet, so don't ask me for them. My brother's in fairly big post-rock band in Duluth, Minnesota. If you feel like it, their myspace site is

it's about time we had a post-rock thread. it is the most expressive style of music, in my experience. and yes, i've listened to an extensive amount of everything. :D

here are some bands you guys should check out--besides the staples already mentioned, of course:

the american analog set
the ascent of everest
esmerine (my favorite post-rock of late)
fly pan am
god is an astronaut
lights out asia
my dad vs. yours
the samuel jackson five
saxon shore
set fire to flames
signal hill
six organs of admittance
sparrows swarm and sing
this is your captain speaking
the timeout drawer
unwed sailor

Man, I'd love to live in Montreal, with their thriving post-rock scene. There are so many Godspeed You! Black Emperor side-projects. It's some good stuff.

I don't listen to much, mainly just classic ones like Sigur Ros and Explosions In The Sky and From The Sky (They are on SD).

Set Fire To Flames is some sexy shit.

Oh good, i need some help here anyways:

I don't know anything about post-rock but never shy, I bought an explosions in the sky CD. I was going to buy the CD with the angle on the cover because the art was great, but apparently thats their "mediocre" album. So I was told to get some white one with writing all over it, but the clerk said it was their softer one, so I ended up buying "All of a sudden" and have yet to listen to it.

Long story short: Is "All of a Sudden" worth the listen, or should I have picked up something else?

Edit: I listened to esmerine on the back of Six's recommendation and having heard that I'm wondering what the qualifications were for Post-rock?

And do the two Buckethead gem's "Electric Tears" and "Colma" count as post-rock albums?

I think their great, try White Wash, Ghost (both from Colma) or "Sketches of Spain (for Miles)," or "Mantaray" (both from tears)

I like Earth Is Not etc, best. All of a Sudden is worth a listen but I would've picked up somethinhg else, however since you have it put it on.
