Hey guys, recently ive started writing a bunch of post-rock stuff (just after a friend suggested i wasn't too bad at it) My problem is I only listen to a few post-rock bands and I need more inspiration! biggrin.gif

At the moment I listen to:
God is an Astronaut
Explosions in the Sky
Mogwai
This Will Destroy You
Nest
Oceansize
Sigur Ros
The Album Leaf
Do Make Say Think
65 days of Static
God Speed You! Black Emporer
and
If these Trees could Talk

Any Recommendations!?

also if you have time if you could check out some of my work and tell me what you think I would appreciate it smile.gif

Very chill sound you have going Mike. I enjoy the melodies and the sounds. I miss some tempo variation though, but I wonder if that is just a result of the post rock genre. It all flows together really nicely though.

Man I seriously wish I can help you but after reading your list you made me worried a lot. I don't know any of those names smile.gif I should really sit down and discover some bands like that - at least informative.

When I read a post and don't recognize one single band mentioned in the thread I know I'm either too old, too young or too stuck in the 80's!!! \m/ biggrin.gif

Amazing that you should post that one. I only recently heard the album and haven't been able to stop listening to that song smile.gif To me 'All is violent, all is bright' is one of the best albums in it's genre.

From what I've heard sofar I'd have to say that God is an Astronaut is my favorite in the genre.

Btw, if anyone wants to try something related that is a bit heavier I'd recommend trying the album 'Panopticon' by Isis.
