Default Modern Post-Punk Super Appreciation Thread

This relatively new modern wave of post-punk (2010-2015) has been the biggest underground obsession, such as when the short-lived "post-punk revival" fad came in the noughties and produced records from Bloc Party, LCD Soundsystem, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Rapture, White Stripes, The National, etc etc. much different sounding, sure. Nonetheless, it's still my favorite time for music, nothing compares to it I believe.

What I'm now trying to say is that I have no doubt this era, might it be longlived or shortlived, be described as the brooding revival of true post-punk, recalling bands like Sonic Youth, Joy Division, early Nick Cave. Post-punk shows you go to these days will never be as good as they are now for awhile until 25 years from now it comes back again in full swing. It's exciting, alrite?

I guess the point of this thread is to maybe recommend some newer bands making waves in the underground currently. Bands like Iceage, Ought, Protomartyr, Cloud Nothings, Viet Cong. That dark, sometimes melodic, always punk sound. Even bands in the noughties be recommended.

Some songs from some of my favorite ones

Love this thread. I too have been really into the true post-punk revival. I liked some of the previous post-punk revival, but to me a lot of it was too polished while the most recent stuff like you're referring to is a lot more in the spirit of stuff like Joy Division, Bauhaus, etc. with its DIY, underground aesthetic. I like it very, very much. I'll post some of my favs in the next day or so but I'm especially into Viet Cong, Institute, and Total Control lately.

And now I'm gonna listen to Institute and Total Control. Self Defense Family's another obscure gem

Hell yes, Heaven is Earth is one of my top releases of 2015.

Just started the new Ought album and it's pretty good. I agree with what someone else said on here (sidewinder I think?) about the vocals being much better. It's not like I thought the vocals on the debut were bad, but I find the new ones a lot more interesting.

Im having a hard time defining modern post punk, you mentioned the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Rapture and to me they do sound like modern post punk but you also mentioned Bloc party and Sonic youth which i would define as alternative / experimental rock.

Can this be considered modern post punk?

The "Post Punk Revival" of the early 00's is much different sounding than the post-punk movement happening now. So bands like The Rapture and Franz Ferdinand then had these sort of angular, spiky guitar tones that defined that genre. So no, QOTSA are certainly not post-punk. I said Sonic Youth because their experimental art rock they did is seeping into post-punk music today, such as the band Ought and their new record.

The hives have been referred to as post punk. Qotsa is desert/stoner rock, with some vaguely industrial sounds appearing on Era Vulgaris and more of a straight (albeit, very good) hard rock vibe on ...Like Clockwork.

The hives are old enough that they belong to the older post punk revival thing, though, I think.

This. One of those bands during that time I never got into though.

I've never gotten that into the records, but their live shows look ****ing crazy.
