Hi. I listen to real post-rock.

Do you listen to real post-rock? Come on in and recommend and chat!

I remember a nice group...but it was just false post rock, and since you don't want that, my reply has no meaning.

The fact that GY!BE influenced third-wave crescendocore bands doesn't make them any less relevant in terms of 90s post-rock.
>>
>>52168211
>>52168166
Guys. You're right. I forgot some. Even Yume Bitsu was 90s I just realized. It's unfair to have DMST and not Godspeed.
>>
>>52168282
You should have neither

Yes to Yume though

Hating Godspeed is a meme. Their 5 albums are the 5 best recordings in music

I dunno, that kinda noisy, dark sound that you see in these 90s alt bands.

Swans post-punk stuff isn't remotely post-rock.

Glenn Branca (and This Heat's first album) are post-rock though.

haha, I like those good bands too
>>
>>52171585
>>52171627
In all honesty though, I like first wave. It's just that I feel a lot of it is hideously overrated for hipster cred and a lot of first wave fans seem to completely disregard 2nd wave. I can imgaine completely disregarding 3rd wave because it's pretty much all the same shit but come on.

how is gy!be not real post-rock? not enough polyrythems for you?
>>
>>52171735
It's true though. They are true post-rock. GY!BE is not, it's crescendocore.

Fuck GY!BE for ruining real post-rock forever.
>>
>>52171752
But Godspeed were just doing what Slint already did. You are not allowed to like one and hate the other.
>>
>>52171752
>crescendocore
>Oh look mom, i just learned a new buzzword, I'm sure gonna show those GYBE and ITS fags!

Honestly explain to me what's wrong with crescendos, they're good in moderation, also it's not their fault they ruined the genre, that'd be like blaming MBV for ruining shoegaze because of their clones
>>
>>52171693
>not camofluer instead of serpentine
I think you meant Upgrade and Afterlife
Also what's wrong with Moonshake?
>>52171675
Yeah, to be honest a lot of first wave fans are like that, though that shouldn't reduce the enjoyment you get out of those first wave bands
>>52171730
I'd say it's more noise pop. The drums and guitars on this album are used in an an unusual way, plus the krautrock and dub influences help too
>>
>>52171744
No, too much bland and cheesy chamber instrumentation and crescendo wankery on top of a shallow LOL WE'RE SO PUNK FUCK DA SYSTEM aesthetic. And you idiots just eat it up.

>>52171779
Slint and GY!BE are nothing alike. Actually educate yourself before putting on a trip.

>>52171796
>they're good in moderation
Oh jeez, are you fucking serious? Just listen to the first wave, they don't need endless plodding crescendos to keep the listener's attwention. They do that by actually doing something new and experimental with traditional rock instrumentation rather than wanking over meandering builds.
>>
I suggest checking out the Soul Static Sound catalog. Some rare cuts from groups like Tortoise, Ui, HiM, Directions, Ganger, To Rococo Rot, and others. Recently picked up the Directions in Music lp on vinyl.
>>
>>52171809
camofleur is the most coherent gastr del sol release imo
upgrade and afterlife has rebecca sylvester tho

moonshake? i wouldnt call them post rock, id file them under post punk. good band though
>>
>>52171811
>Slint and GY!BE are nothing alike
Actually listen to the music before spouting off misinformed opinions.
>>
>>52171675
I agree with you completely

>>52171811
>no true scotsman
GYBE is post-rock, every site thinks so

Slint had lots of crescendos on their album

>muh experimentation
>something new and experimental
not at all
Also many 1st wave albums seem to drag for too long
>>
>>52171811
>No, too much bland and cheesy chamber instrumentation and crescendo wankery

give me an example of a song that contains this wankery

>Slint and GY!BE are nothing alike.
whatever you say guy
>>
Goddamnit. Why do these threads always devolve into crescendocore arguments. It's as pointless as arguing about religion and whatnot.

Anywhoo, I was wondering if I could get some recs on some stuff that sounds sonically similar to Disco Inferno. I'm going to listen to all the stuff in OP's chart, but I figured since there's already a thread up...
>>
>>52171841
I wouldn't say they're nothing alike, but GY!BE definitely wasn't doing the same thing that Slint did. Slint's music had far more emphasis on melody, as well as having a much different atmosphere.

Regardless of what you think of either band, you can't say they did the exact same thing
>>
>>52171827
I dunno, Upgrade & Afterlife is probably my favourite because of the lack of proper rock instrumentation. I really dig the folk influences that album has
>>52171841
I don't see the comparison either. The way I see it GYBE make chamber music with field recordings and Slint make post-hardcore/math rock
>>
>>52171866
You could check out Fridge

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMs_241gvBY

>>52171924
That's really fucking cool. Thanks anon.

>>52171982
Happiness is one of my favorite post-rock albums. Fridge is actually a band that Four Tet was in before becoming Four Tet

No, sorry :/

Nope. These are
King Crimson - Larks Tongues in Aspic
This Heat - This Heat
Henry Cow - Legened
Can - Tago Mago
Glenn Branca - The Acension
>>
>>52173191
Do you like any 2nd or 3rd wave post-rock?
>>
>>52173214
Haven't really tried to get into it. Not because people say it's bad (I'm pretty sure there's a lot of great stuff), just because I haven't.
I do like the bands have this "dynamic shift" sound, like Ahleuchatistas, Dilute, and Deerhoof (if that counts)
>>
Is Cloudkicker post-rock or post-metal?
>>
Can you guys stop pretending Second Wave and Third Wave actually exist?

There's the first wave of 90s post-rock artists, then there's everything after it.
>>
>people arguing 1st wave is better
>people arguing it's all good
>both sides imply there's even such a thing called post-rock
it's not a real thing, you plebs.
>>
>>52173191
Legend and the ascension are the only ones of those who are even remotely post-rock
>>
>>52173276
But Second Wave is actually great
3rd wave just tries to copy the success of previous artists
>>
>>52173296
Word, post-rock in vagueness is only second to rock.
>>
>>52173296
It "could" be an actual thing, but at this point it's all very arbitrary.

>>52173303
Do you even Larks Tongues Part 1?
Do you even Horizontal Hold?
Do you even Halleluwah?
>>
WEG, WEG&Mono, Farewell Poetry, the list could go on...
>>
>>52173191
What about this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffr0opfm6I4

>>52173248
Well most of it is essential /mu/core

And I heard Deerhoof are good, which album should I listen to?

>>52173296
Post-rock is just a subgenre of prog rock
>>
I want to ask again, how do you "trve first wave" fags feel about post-metal? favourite bands?
>>
90s albums by Circle are something people in this thread would likely enjoy, it kind of combines krauty repetition with the alt rock sound of the decade. The earliest EPs are pretty much Loop/Spacemen 3 worship.

Still, only GY!BE is, but I couldn't really get into it.
Check out Apple O'. It's very "explosive".
>Post-rock is just a subgenre of prog rock
Not really true. I mean, some Prog Rock bands did the same Post-Rock bands would, but Post-Rock evolved on it's own.
And TVU could fit, but I'm not really sure.

bullshit. slint is considered "post-rock" and they definitely not a prog rock band
again, post-rock is not a thing
stop arbitrarily putting these bands together as if they "belonged" together or whatever
nerds
>>
>>52173444
Apple O could fit, it's filled with "sonic explosions", like sped up Post-Rock crescendos. Do you get what I mean?

>>52173470
Haven't listened to it yet, that's why.

>>52173461
It has that feeling on Heroin where it gets more and more intense.
>>
>>52173470
and The Flowers of Romance
>>
>>52173430
>>52173413
this has nothing to do with "post-rock". it's just a bunch of independent label-signed bands

Yes, but Mogwai and Sigur Rós are pretty damn popular

>>52173477

Post-rock is just a subgenre of prog rock
Ok, I know it sounds dumb, but they have some things in common

Also, I once said that Sigur Rós don't deserve to be thrown with all other 2nd/3rd wave bands because their stuff is way more dream pop influenced and less reliuant on build-ups. Plus they are actually willing to progress somehow, like on Valtari even though many people disliked it.
>>
>>52173500

From what I see all tracks are under 3 minutes, that's not really post-rock in my dumb opinion

>>52173511

It really isn't, dude. That's like saying punk rock is a sub-genre of 50's rock n' roll.
>>
>>52173539
I'd love to see your definition of post-rock
>>
>>52173552

ironically though, by pointing out that certain people just use the term to make themselves look more cool, we are on our own hand making ourselves sound more cool too.

Some art rock bands like Wire or Peter Gabriel use simple instruments

then go listen to them you fucking mong

i mean seriously if you haven't listened to Houdini, you shouldn't be acting like you have some solid grasp of post-rock

What makes those bands Post-Rock then?
What makes Wire or Peter Gabriel Art Rock then?

>>52174122
You should be able to explain why they fit the definition of Post-Rock if they don't follow the one I posted before.

>>52174093
Don't worry, i like you
>>
>>52173386
I like a lot of first wave, though I wouldn't call myself a first wave fag. I like atmosludge a lot, but it's hard to come across good stuff since to some degree it suffers from the same problem as thrid wave where a lot of artists try and copy a small set of succesful predecessors.

My favorites would be:
Neurosis
ISIS
Old Man Gloom
Cult of Luna
Amenra
Dirge
>>
>>52174172
I don't feel like explaining now, I'm tired
As I said I think these genres are fancy terms with little actual meaning.
>>
>>52174169
I would say I know enough to make a statemnt like that.
Why don't you, The Post-Rock Expert, offer a better definition?

>>52174167
Yeah, it's dumb, but what I said is the only unifying element Post-Rock bands have.

>>52174172
I like you too :3

>>52174194
Nope. The genres are real, the difference is that they have been missused so much that they lost credibility.
>>
>>
>>52174189
Nice taste

These copying bands would be Pelican, Shels and Russsian Circles?

Check this album out, easily my favorite in recentyears, combines elements of prog, doom and sludge.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7FFIVI86iQ

>>52174215
Legit good album, meme or not.
>>
>>52174251
>These copying bands would be Pelican, Shels and Russsian Circles?
Pretty much. Stuff like Rosetta and Mouth of the Architect are also pretty bad offenders IMO.

Also thanks for reminding me to check out Blindead. I've been hearing nothing but good stuff about them but I keep forgetting to actually get around to listening to them. Will check out.
>>
>>52174288
Rosetta's first album was really good though
>>
>>52174302
I think it's pretty decent but still rather derivative, which is not bad in itself but it still kinda nags at me. FromWake/Lift on they keep using this really grating lead guitar tone and past that I just kinda give up.

Maybe I'm a little hard on Rosetta lately because they've kind of lost their lustre to me. I dunno.
>>
>>52166209
Take out Sigur Ros and fucking Mogwai and replace them by Bark Psychosis and Mark Hollis.
>>
>>52166209
Why doesn't this genre exist anymore?
It has every reason to but it just doesn't anymore, it doesn't make sense.
>>
>>52174370
Hey now, Young Team and Agaetis Byrjun are good albums. Not first wave, but still good.

The lack of Bark Psychosis is an absolute travesty though.
>>
>>52174370
>Take out Sigur Ros
Why
>>
>>52174402
It does still exist in some form, it's just not nearly as prevalent as third wave EitS ripoffs. I mean, there's Grails, Radian, Tarentel's later stuff (interesting case as they started out as 2nd wave but became more first wave as they went on), hell even that These New Puritans album that came out last year was Talk Talk as fuck. It's harder to come by but not extinct.
>>
Anyone ever listen to this one?
>>
>>52174370
Wait, no Bark Psychosis? What the fuck. And this chart has a bunch of more obscure albums too.
