I missed this thread most of all.

I haven't listened to the new Russian Circles yet, but I'm going to fix that soon, on the other hand, the new EitS it's good, but I think just for fans, "Trembling Hands" and "Postcard from 1952" are two of their best songs.

Maybeshewill released one of the best post-rock albums this year, "I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone", much better than "Take Care..."

Here some band for your consideration:

Flies are spies from hell
Kid Ikarus
New Century Classics
Worrytrain
Immanu El

And please, don't mention "Sigur Rós" and "post-rock" in the same sentence.

Empros rules hard. So much better than Geneva, which was occasionally lovely but generally boring.

But in seriousness:

I didn't really think much of it on first listen, but a good number of spins later and I'm really starting to feel it's the come-down the album needs at the end.

Yeah, that Maybeshewill album is pretty solid - though I think their previous one, Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony, was better.



Can I take this opportunity to again tout the glories of Sleepmakeswaves' new album? Definitely in my top five albums of the year (currently with Russian Circles at #1). Pretty thrilled they've just announced a Melbourne show for next month - I missed their album launch thanks to being overseas. Though they've got a new drummer now ... it's so weird to think that the band playing now has only half the same members as the band I first fell in love with two or three years ago.

I listened to the new Russian Circles... wow, really, one of the best works this year and not just in the post-rock department

I remembered this collab... great job, this is what I call the new post-rock royalty

Didn't even know they had a new album out. Really dug the first one. Thanks for the tip - I'm gonna go take a listen.

Their music, in many ways, sets the bar for how beautiful and moving music can, and should, be to me. Their live translations also set the bar for how good a band should be able to sound live. Beautiful show, beautiful songs, beautiful night.

I'm totally going to buy an album or two of theirs and just give them to people I know this weekend. More people need to know this band.
I had a similar response when I saw them in West Texas this fall. It was a small, ugly concrete building and the sound was bad. It was supposed to have been outside under the massive West Texas sky which would have been so amazing since they hail from that area and apparently some of the music is inspired by that landscape, but they had to move it inside because of a frightening storm.

So, point being, even in a crappy environment with bad sound, I was seriously moved. A couple of people came up to me the next day around town and said things like, 'I saw you at the show last night and wanted to say hi but you looked like you didn't want to be disturbed from the music.' They were right.

Strangely, I remember reading something or other they posted about that show on Facebook. Had no clue you were there, cool stuff.

Can't wait to see Explosions In The Sky next month. I thought I was going to have to cut short a trip to New Zealand by a few days so that I didn't miss them in Melbourne ... then they added a couple of Kiwi dates. Any excuse to stay longer in New Zealand is a good excuse! Plus the tickets are cheaper and the venues they're playing are about a quarter the size of the place they're playing in Melbourne, so those are big bonuses.

Their Melbourne show in 2008 remains one of my most cherished concert memories. Just overwhelmingly good. Their albums never really seem to capture how exceptional they are on stage.

Ooh, thanks for posting this. Mooncake are pretty good (shame about the band name) and I wasn't aware they'd done this collaboration.

You should quite enjoy it, I hope. It's actually technically their debut album - I always think of In Today Already Walks Tomorrow as an album, but they only count it as an EP. Despite the personnel changes, it's still got that SMW sound. I had a bit of trepidation about that when I first played it, but turns out there was nothing to worry about!

^ of an awesome band

I must say, Axver, the new Sleepmakeswaves it's amazing, beyond words, "One Day You Will Teach Me To Let Go Of My Fears" is one of the best songs this year by far, beautiful... although, I think it's just an EP, right?, I can't count an EP like an album for my "best of" list at the end of the year
