this is a post-rock thread, and no mention to the new and absolutely amazing A Silver Mt. Zion album?

"13 Blues for Thirteen Moons"

I still haven't gotten around to listening to any Silver Mt. Zion, but they are coming through my town in May, so I'm going to try to check them out.

That was our plan all along. (Insert evil laugh).

And, holy shit!! I just got around to listening to Yndi Halda. Absolutely love it. I've been really into strings lately, and this is just amazing.

I also listened to Yndi Halda for the first time recently. Loved it.

Even without vocals, it actually seemed quite progressive to me.

Then again, really, this can all be considered progressive. People see that term and think of the early 70's, but man, it's so much more than that.

Post Rock seems like a continuation of it in a way. Probably one of the reasons why I enjoy it so much.

I'm loving Yndi Halda more each time I listen to them.

It's funny you say that about progressive rock and post rock because I just wrote a paper a few weeks ago for my rock history class comparing the two genres, except I focused on both of their rejections of the rock standard of the time and their popularity. I definitely see a lot of similarities between the two, and I agree that post rock is a continuation of sorts from the progressive rock tradition.

probably it has something of prog, but I don't see post-rock as a continuation

Perhaps continuation was the wrong word to use, as its clearly gone off on its own tangent. The genre does have progressive elements, however.

God Is An Astronaut is in Boston next week. I'd love to be able to go if I can.

Nor I.

I think trying to act like post-rock came from prog is giving prog more credit than it deserves and giving post-rock itself far too little credit. Sure, there might be similarities, but there are similarities with classical music and post-rock as well, that doesn't mean that it's a continuation or was derived from it. Post-rock is its own genre with its own origins. I see far more similarity and influence from shoegaze, but I still wouldn't say it's a continuation.

I don't mean to top that, but I'm seeing them TOMORROW NIGHT!!!!!!!




Martha's post reminded me that Red Sparowes with Russian Circles and Hellas Mounds will be here in 2 weeks. I like what I've heard from Russian Circles but I'm not familiar with Red Sparowes or Hellas Mounds

Red Sparowes sound a lot like Russian Circles to me, but I like Russian Circles better. If the tickets are cheap, you should go.
