Post-Rock: what happened?
I got into Post-Rock two years ago. I started with stuff like TNT, MNLWND, Hex, Disco Inferno, Talk Talk... And it's so much better than shit like EITS and generic crescendo core
This one was pretty nice
There really has not been any post rock though. I've been wanting to make some for a while but no drummers.
I feel pretty much the entirety of third wave isn't really worth listening to because it's all EitS and LYSF worship. And I'm saying that as someone who enjoys LYSF and GY!BE in general.
That said there's some decent post-'00s post-rock out there but it's rare to come by.
Jakob - Sines is okay and honestly you guys were way too harsh on Rave Tapes but yeah it was a shit year for post rock

There are so so so many bands that must have seen that LYSF was really highly rated, misinterpreted the album completely, gave themselves a name like "Twinkling Rivers In The Love Majestic Atmosphere" and started blurting out record after record of generic buildup-crescendo-buildup-crescendo with no interesting anything, while proclaiming themselves to be extremely deep and meaningful (they're not they just want attention). It's a very shallow gimmick and I fucking hate it.
/mu/ very easily confuses "any song with a crescendo in it" for "bad" though. It's bad if it's bad music with a crescendo in it, "crescendocore" is just another way to compose a song.
Yeah but even if a song does the buildup-crescendo-buildup-crescendo thing, does it matter if the result is a beautiful song? Obviously an entire album like that would be bullshit and a lack of creativity, and they would bleed into each other to the point you couldn't tell them apart, but are we seriously going to say bands that are hated on around here like EitS, Hammock, Maybeshewill, ect, are honestly that fucking terrible? Perhaps they aren't the greatest, but would anyone say they don't have a handful of decent songs?
Rock isn't more limited than hip-hop, ambient or noise. It's just that it's a popular genre and every single person makes the same fucking thing.
That shit would get fixed if artists would actually explore music and take influences from other shit, but no, most musicians are fucking plebs.
I guess it depends on what people are looking for in post-rock. I mean, there's first wave purists who can't stand anything after 1996, there's 2nd wave fans that cry about how post-rock is dead forever ever since The Earth Is Not A Could Dead Place came out, you can't please everyone. The third wave is however probably the most homogenous one of the three and if you don't like that sound, well then tough luck but them's the breaks.
That said though, even though I don't like the greater majority of 3rd wave post-rock, there's occasionally some album that pops up that I do actually enjoy. Tunnel Blanket, for example. Then there's of course post-rock bands that seem to be creeping back a little towards first wave such as Grails, Radian or Tarentel.
Just delay stuff. My current delay is a bit too much and I cant really turn it down. Also I apologize in advance for the buzzy recording, my interface is dead.
i really like the first wave
i got into it by GYBE
i also dig them, though other 2nd wave stuff like mono or mogwai is terrible to me and the 3rd a worse version of the 2nd
I've just been getting myself into Crippled Black Phoenix and I really like this album, does /mu/ approve of them or are they another generic crescendocore?
Post-rock died after LYSF and rise of post-metal
I don't get why SR gets lumped with all generic crescdendocore, their stuff is much more dream pop influenced and they were actually willing to take some new ideas with Valtari and Kveikur
Come on, have you listened to Blindead? Great stuff
That does sound pretty sweet, will have to listen to more of them. Still, the entire modern post-metal/sludge scene is just filled with stuff that sounds practically the same so this is more of an exception to the rule.
I dunno dude, there's some ok stuff like Old Man Gloom and Amenra but it's kind of sad that 90% of atmosludge is aping Isis and Neurosis. I still feel some of them do a decent job at least.
Nope, the only bands I love from the scene are Rwake and Neurosis. Maybe Abandon too but they have little in common with post-metal. Feel free to share some stuff that stands out from the crowd though.
Well I mostly know about the most famous bands but what do you not like about Isis? They're the closest thing metal has come to to being heavy and emotionally engaging at the same time to me.
I don't really know how to explain other than it just didn't click. The loud parts didn't get me very hype and I didn't find the slower parts particularly atmospheric or pleasant-sounding. Everything just kinda blends in together, you know?
Well Ok, it still hasn't clicked with me completely either, I love the concepts and instrumentation but I still feel like I'm missing something.
Started with them only last month.
waves are for homosexuals
this chart is for semi-homosexuals, but i think it's helpful if you're looking for certain styles, as waves don't describe what you're actually listening to.
Where would you add post-rock influenced prog like CBP and this?
I've always found that Slint has similarities to Moss Icon, specifically in the album Spiderland. Moss Icon is proto-screamo/emo and hardcore. Slint is obviously a little softer on the ears, but it fits closer to that than lets say: Talk Talk, or Disco Inferno.
First-wavers who complain about post rock sound like kids commenting on Queen videos on Youtube.
>i'm only 12 years old but i listen to proper post rock, i wish i was around in the 90s so i could experience all the proper post rock, bark psychosis, slint etc. not the mass-produced crescendo rubbish we have today
