A Further Selection of Post-Rock

Almost a year ago, I wrote a post detailing what I conceive “post-rock” music to be, and I provided some samplings of the post-rock bands I had heard up to that point. However, since then I’ve collected a lot more post-rock, and I have more I would like to share with you. This sample spans the spectrum of post-rock. Some songs are very rockish with a post-rock feel, and some are what could possibly be referred to as hardcore post-rock (that’s completely my term for it). Either way, while I’m still not convinced that post-rock is going to become the next revolution in rock n’ roll, I absolutely love listening to it, and I hope you enjoy this selection.

  1. Well, I suppose I should delve in and sample. I guess I could enjoy something newer than the 1982 Supertramp album I listened to while working out this morning. Watch out, Jeff, or the music you enjoy today will be what you’re still listening to thirty years from now!

    • Well something similar has happened to me recently. For most of high school and for the first few years of college, I listen to the same music. Only in the last couple of years have I really expanded and found a lot of new music! (This post is case and point) But I do hope that I will always “keep up” with new music while never forgetting the music I listened to when I was in college!
