Your top 10 post-rock bands

 
  • Your top 10 post-rock bands

    When I thought of post-rock, I thought of GY!BE, mogwai, explosions in the sky. Maybe going a little further, I could think of bands like slint, do make say think, storm & stress. But the scene seems alot bigger, and there are alot more post-rock bands than i originally thought. Finding new bands like below the sea, the evpatoria report, samuel jackson five, bright red paper, battles, God is an astronaut, ect

    I haven't seen anyone do a top 10, so i don't know if its discouraged, but I'm curious as to your top 10, current or all-time doesnt matter b/c I know it always changes.

    1.GY!BE
    2.Slint
    3.Tortoise
    4.Sea and cake
    5.Do Make say think
    6.Sonora Pine
    7.Explosions in the sky
    8.Mogwai
    9.Grails
    10.by the end of tonight

    So for me theres quite clearly an elite top 5, and then all the other pretenders.

    1.Godspeed - classically overblown melancholic
    2.Sigur Ros - popplagid
    3.Mogwai - wall of sound + a song called glasgow-megasnake
    4.Mt Zion - terrible yet moving singing, gypsy rock, choir action, sad
    5.Explosions - happy! chimes, build ups which aren't quite as good as godspeed's, talent

    You don't need any others.
