I don't think post-rock is dying, it's just changing shape. You have the OGs like Mogwai, Slint, Godspeed, etc. and you get a million imitators but you also get the bands who take the blueprint and push it into new boundaries, like Sigur Ros, Moving Mountains, Aereogramme and such. Same goes for math rock. In the beginning you have a few underground cult following bands that influence 21st century newcomers who either copy or innovate. It's hard for a genre to die, it just usually morphs into something new.

Also, I know this wasn't directed to me but I just had to say something.
wait, you have a last.fm account now?

not at all. I don't think my parents would let me

I just wanted to throw in my two cents because I used to be a major Foals fan.
