Battles are pretty cool and they put on a hell of a live show but I can't help but think that that the 'Mirrored' sound they have now will probably get stale in a few years. I'm really curious as to what new tangents they'll try and explore.

Mirrored is like the sequel to Yellow Submarine but on (more) drugs. I have no idea how they're going to top it in the same genre (whatever it is).

Just because an album has a challenging sound doesn't mean it's drug induced.

I was mainly talking about the idea that they're in a box/room that's traveling through time.

Hmmm, that is an insightful observation windwaker especially considering that the album's 'being' or 'existence' only breathes in loops and repeating patterns within said box. It exists as a constant loop of thought and life which strikes me as being a similar idea that Douglas Hofstadter has used in several of his books when he tries to argue that patterns, loops and recursion are the constructs of our consciousness.

Also "Radio Protector" is one of the coolest songs ever, so anybody bashin' on 65dos can just stuff it.

Anybody else listened to Epic45's Let Your Heart Be the Map? It's really minimal, but amazingly pleasant. Probably treads a little into ambient territory (they're on Make Mine Music along with July Skies and a bunch of other similar artists), but this is as an appropriate thread as any.

Incidentally, July Skies' The Weather Clock was finally just released.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not because I thought the whole mirror box thing was really awesome and gave me something to think about that meshed with the music.

Epic is the word you are looking for. Take some later day EITS, throw in some Mogwai dynamics and some long (7, 12, 15, 20 minute) songs which flow beautifully. Very highly recommended.

I'm seeing these guys with A Place To Bury Strangers this weekend. Thanks for the heads up; I am really digging their stuff. Hopefully, they will have vinyl at the show.

I was reading on a lot of blogs that A Place To Bury Strangers are notorious for their loudness like Mogwai. Is this something anyone else can vouch for? Do I need to purchase ear plugs prior to Saturday?

I just got the new Pacific UV album. Their last LP was squarely in the Shoegaze camp, but they're a lot more post-rocky now. I haven't had a good sit-down with it, but it's really cool from what I've heard, sometimes reminding me of Maserati

Just saw Explosions in the Sky tonight. Has to be one of the greatest experiences of my life.

This is in Australia, so having the chance to see those guys is kind of a big deal.

And I saw Battles a few weeks back (although i'd hardly call them post rock).

It's been a great month of music for me.

I saw them in Sydney on Friday night. Awesome show. I'd listened to a bunch of their live stuff (archive.org, why are you so awesome) but the live experience was in a whole other world.

Now, if only Mono would come play.

I figured this would be worth bumping the thread over.

Caspian has a new track out. They're putting out a split 7" with Constants and if you preorder, mp3s of the record are made available to you right away. Both tracks are excellent but, Caspian fanboy that I am, I'd say their contribution to the split is better.

It's darker sounding than The Four Trees but, it's still distinctly Caspian. They've played a few new tracks the last couple of times I've seen them and it seems like this is the direction they're moving in. I like it, so should you.

I can only listen to the minute and a half long preview of it on their MySpace (here) because I'm spending what little money I have left on Nine Inch Nails' Ghost, but it's sounding pretty sweet.

Do they have a new release scheduled after this 7"? I'd love to hear more of them playing in this style.

Their website says that the song on the 7" will be included on a full release in some form in 2009. I hope they put out another single or EP in the meantime cause the single is a tease of what's to come.

Can anybody recommend me some good original sounding post-rock (as in no mono/eits/mogwai/godspeed clones)?

I need something as fresh as 65dos was back when I first listened to them.

Anyone?

Not many people have heard or ever mention Té, but they're one of my favourite post-rock bands, and about as far from the GYBE/EitS style as you can get. Some of their songs are up on their myspace page, Avarice... being my favourite song of their's:

I mentioned them a couple of pages back, just got into them and I really like them. Only heard "Sore Wa.." though so I'm trying to track down their other stuff, it's very hard to search for a band named Te'. Now that I know the english album names it should probably be easier, though.

Back in business

I caught Thee Silver Mount Zion in Montreal last night and it was loving amazing. The new material is brilliant and they debuted a couple new songs that aren't on the new album. Efrim is rocking a new guitar/amp setup and Sebastien has switched out the electric bass for another guitar. Anemones opened and were quite good.

Setlist:
13 Blues for Thirteen Moons
Black Waters Blowed/Engine Broke Blues
Metal Bird
BlindBlindBlind
1,000,000 Died To Make This Sound
There Is a Light

Microphones in the Trees

I believe they played a second encore song as well but I had to leave in order to catch the last subway. Either way, I certainly didn't feel cheated by the length of the show, which was close to 2 hours.

edit: The second encore was "Hang on to Each Other"

edit2: VVVV I have never had any Constellation or Temporary Residence release warp on me. Perhaps the records are not being stored properly (on top of each other)? VVVV

Do any of you people with vinyl copies of Godspeed's 'Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven' notice any warping of the records?

My first purchase had significant warping on the first disc. I returned it, and got the second (and last) copy, and there's warping second disc.

I suppose it's possible the batch my record store received were just ruined.

Coincidentally, I also ordered three EITS records and two Mono records from auralexploits. Those all arrived with warped discs as well.

I'm starting to think the genre is just cursed for me. It's as if there's a force in the universe attempting to prevent me from enjoying post-rock vinyls. There's nothing more loving frustrating that putting a record on the turntable for the first time and realizing its goddamned warped.
