I'm having a hard time moving on now that LCD is over. Anyone else feel this way? I'm not trying to troll... just being honest.

^ in all fairness, a lot of bands do that: mono, explosions on the sky, godspeed, etc. i haven't spent much time with them, but the clip above and a quick itunes search makes it seem like they could be pretty cool to check out.

Definitely not like Mogwai..pretty different vibe. I'm really digging this track, Black Dunes! Really wished they had a different band name, but oh well.

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 12:04 PM

Yeah, terrible band name. And they sound a lot like GY!BE (moreso than Mogwai, anyway)

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 12:08 PM

This new album actually seems like it will be a departure from the usual post-rock stuff. From the new songs I've heard, it's a lot more kinda heavy, noisy ambient stuff. Looking forward...

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 12:19 PM

Yeah, can we all agree finally that GY!BE and Mono are the only two post-rock bands worth bothering with?

Talk Talk, Slint, and PTL are to be included in that list

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 12:27 PM

Slint were an emo band, not post-rock.

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 12:29 PM

Slint emo? Emo wasn't even defined at the time of Spiderland, and to say that they fit the emo rules is a stretch at best. Nah, Slint is firmly in post-rock.

12:23...idiot!

Maybe you can add Sigur Ros to the two other bands, depending on how you define the Ros.

Old news...I'm into post-post rock these days.

post-post-post-rock = Miley Cyrus

12:49, let's see what you have to say about post-rock/the bands. Don't worry, I'll wait.

+1 on Talk Talk
Those two CDs are in a class by themselves

haha what a suprise

hipster blog = trolling 18 year olds that think they know all
funny how controlled and predictable the "blog-o-sphere" is

nah not going to happen.

"Slint emo? Emo wasn't even defined at the time of Spiderland, and to say that they fit the emo rules is a stretch at best. Nah, Slint is firmly in post-rock."

1. Something has to be defined in order for it to exist?
1a. "emo" pre-dated "post-rock" -- if you disagree please explain (emo did exist in the early 90s).
2. Please tell me the emo rules.
3. What high school do you go to?

Gotta love this douchenozzle 2:32 posting their usual douchenozzle comments. "Haha hipster haha". I'm sure I'm not the only one who's noticed the format of these posts. This BV cocksucker sounds more like a hipster than the ones he calls hipster! LOL!

3:42 "Slint is emo because I said so"
fuck you. no soup for you. pussy.

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 4:03 PM

Actually, Slint is emo because they played emo music. But you're probably 17 and think in order to play emo you have to wear eyeliner. Get schooled, son.

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 4:21 PM

slint was definitely an emo band, its kind of silly that they are always called a post-rock band. but um, listen to the music instead of just believing everything you read

(and yes, dont worry, your still allowed to like them -- they were great)

Nosferatu Man an emo classic NOT
Good Morning Captain an emo classic NOT

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 4:35 PM

so I am confused about all these sub genres ... what makes a song/act EMO and what makes them POST-ROCK? I thought that emo was kinda fast and aggressive and overtly emotional. I thought that post-rock was using non-traditional song structure, extended building movements, often non-traditional rock instruments (violin, tuba, etc.). It can't be a matter of vocals, since I don't think that there is a constraint on either to have/not have vocals.

What do you fools say? :-)

I tell anyone who uses the word EMO, whether as a pejorative or as a descriptor of any group other than Rites of Spring or Embrace to kinda shut the fuck up and never invade the sanctity of my ears again.

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 4:50 PM

"kindly," that is.

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 4:51 PM

Rites of Spring and Embrace are the only two emo bands, ever?

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 4:54 PM

yes. everyone else played "pussycore".

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2011 4:56 PM
