I've always liked Memorial, so it's cool that they've been playing that one.

$12. I think everything they were selling was $12. I bought a shirt and the CD version of The Rescue, both were $12. I think all the vinyl was $12 as well, kinda wish I would have picked them up.

That's awesome! I'll probably get at least a shirt (if not a couple) and The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place on vinyl then.

Red Sparowes and Russian Circles last night were awesome. I don't have time to say more right now, but I will later.

onebloodonelife... your Space Moon playlist has totally gotten me into post-rock. I'm really intrigued.

Anyone heard Maserati? I like them a lot

kapritska.blogspot.com = lots of post-rock

I'm glad that my playlist did something for you. I have some Maserati already, just their split with The Mercury Program, and I'm getting some more of their stuff now on your recommendation.

kapritska.blogspot.com is good for post-rock albums, it's where I found We vs. Death, and no-datta.blogspot.com puts up all kinds of different music, including lots of post-rock stuff. If you're on LiveJournal, postrockxchange is a great community; they pretty much fill requests nearly instantaneously, and I've discovered some new bands from there.

I just got into 3epkano. I've been really liking post-rock with strings and other classical instruments in it, and 3epkano do a good job of incorporating violins and such into their songs. Still stuck on Yndi Halda too, another great use of strings. And, of course, I'm preparing for Explosions in the Sky on Sunday and listening to them a lot.

It was.


I was really tired from getting up early and working all day (a particularly tiring one as well), and the band came on very late (for me anyway). But I did notice that the music and the harmonies of the instruments made me seem to float a bit. I could feel the rhythm and the music in my body, and it wasn't the volume alone that was doing that. I did have to go sit down towards the end because my feet were numb and I was getting faint, but I think that was mostly tiredness.

It was way cool.

I'm glad you guys are here to get me new music.

I'm about to leave for Milwaukee to see Explosions in the Sky! 6:30am bus from Minneapolis to Milwaukee and then 2:30am tomorrow from Milwaukee to Minneapolis FTW!!

I'm gonna be so tired tomorrow...but, it will be worth it. I'll come back with a full setlist (hopefully, if I can remember them all) and pictures.

Setlist:

Your Hand in Mine
Birth and Death of the Day
Six Days at the Bottom of the Ocean
Catastrophe and the Cure
Greet Death
It's Natural to Be Afraid
Remember Me as a Time of Day
The Only Moment We Were Alone

I'll put up pictures and links to the videos I took once they're uploaded.

Fucking brilliant show though, got to hear a bunch of favorites, was right up on the stage on Munaf's side. I can't believe the energy those guys all put in night after night. A good part of the show I just closed my eyes and let the music take over...amazing experience, I actually felt like I was floating and the music had enveloped me. Crazy stuff.

Very cool, oneblood. I think I would have jumped off the balcony if they would have opened with Your Hand In Mine as I would have been too excited. How'd it work as an opener? Pretty cool they played Remember Me As a Time of Day, I don't think they play the "How Strange" songs much, I like that one too.

Martha, I listened to the Red Sparowes album again this weekend in honor of your concert goings.

I think Inventions for the New Season by Maserati is my favourite post-rock album that I've heard so far. It sounds kinda like if Bono learned to play guitar like Edge instead of singing in the mid 80's and they became a jam band. Fuckin' awesome.

I need to get more Explosions in the Sky, I only have two songs...but Catastrophe and the Cure is amazing

I downloaded like 13 post-rock albums

I love that Yndi Halda album. Another great recommendation here.

Hell, I don't need to check out other sites. I just have to look in this thread.
