I've never done the whole blog thing before, as it has always seemed a little pretentious to me. However, after hearing from about four people who have informed me that people who play post-rock are pretentious, arrogant, misanthropic assholes, I thought, screw it- I'll go and be as much of a conceited douche as I like on UG!
Therefore here is a complation of my favourite post-rock/ambient/experimental artists for you to enjoy. Complete with youtube links - be very f*cking grateful.
Maybeshewill - Another pretty famous band, love their '08 and heavier '09 album - new EP looking good! Easier to listen to if your musical attention span sucks, as their music develops quickly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHW8NfdbfaI
Great great list!! I've been a fan of Explosions, Caspian, and Mogwai but alot of these I haven't heard of before so I'll check them out
I highly recommend Godspeed You! Black Emperor as a contribution to this list. Especially their album 'Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven'. Just give it a few listens to soak in its greatness.
