I read their reviews from time to time. Some I agree with, some I don't.

Decent site.

oh man, has anyone heard the album w o l v v e s by eaststrikewest? AMAZING. It is completely epic, and I think they pull it off really well. I just finished it for the first time but I think I may listen to it again.

Based on your comments, I just found the song Electricity online and took a listen.

Sounds fantastic. It kinda reminds me of Interpol's Turn On The Bright Lights with post-rock elements blended in.

yeah and that's not even the best song on the album imo

I've been really into post-rock lately (I could definitely do a DI of nothing but post-rock ) and one of my happy discoveries is: Greek post-rock bands! they exist. I'm going to study abroad in Athens next semester so I'm hoping I can see some shows and maybe even form a post-rock band of my own. that would be too cool. I've been writing a lot of post-rock stuff lately.

so far my favourite Greek post-rock band is Misuse, who have opened for Mogwai... like a lot of post-rock their songs build up, with some badass heavier riffs. kinda remind me of upcdowncleftcrightcabc+start, maybe? if anyone is interested I can send you their album. there are two free songs on last.fm but I don't think they're their best.

Funny, I think it's the strongest of the bunch, especially how it ends.

Well, this is a great endorsement in my eyes. I'd love to hear their music.

need to get this...you put a song of theirs on one of your DIs and I absolutely loved it. Rudiments of a Spiritual Life. Gorgeous.

if anyone is interested here is a post-rock song I recorded - Your moat is a sea on PureVolume.com™

no drums unfortunately, just guitars and bass. influences include We Vs. Death, Tides From Nebula, If These Trees Could Talk, and Bloc Party

Listened to this bad boy tonight, and it's oh so good. I dig their fusion of electronic beats and post-rock a lot.

I finally get to see Caspian next week, I'm from Massachusetts so it's kind of an embarrassment that it's taken me this long to be able to go see them. In a church no less.

I've gone through it once. I love their sound, even if it doesn't change much from album to album.

Not sure if this is as good as the last album, which was fantastic, but on first listen, I approve.

I'm in NH, so I have no excuses either. I need to fix that soon.

I loved their latest album, a lot more unique and low-key from them.

I really dig it as well. I prefer it over The Four Trees even.
