Post-VC: Official Post-Rock/Post-Metal Discussion v.2.0

Recommended Posts

Yeah....  I'd totally pick it up if I didn't have Dunk coming up soon, the Spurv group buy, and my moment of weakness where i bought the coke bottle green/bone splatter Depature Songs.  I have the album, but without a jacket and it's rather noisy but I just don't have an extra $40 laying around right now, and I don't love it as much as the WYAINE.  Unless one of you wants to get it for me and hold it until my summer job starts ;)

 

In other news, Coastlands just released a new track/video and this thing is pretty fucking great, I must say.  Crushing peak.

So, Jeffk just dropped their first single from the new album.  It didn't move me much at first; they've changed their sound a bit, but they get into the stuff I like about 2/3 of the way through.  Hoping it grows on me; curious to hear what the rest of the album sounds like.  Seems like a bold move by Dunk to sign and release a new album from a band that hasn't put anything out in 6 years and nobody in the USA has heard of lol. 

 

Check it out!

So, I saw Shy, Low last night in Salem, MA.  3 hour drive.  And then 2 exams and 3 classes today. 

They busted out "Presence" for me last night, the first time they've played it in a few years.  It was fucking transcendent.  They also busted out Light Feet as well, which was a trip!  I wish I had more memories of that song, aside from tapping my buddy because we've been laughing about how similar it is to "A Gallant Gentleman". 


Their set last night was as follows:

 

Dialectics, Light Feet > Presence, Dissension. 

 

And man.... Dissension is a fucking beast on stage.  The last half is just pure brilliance.  But I tell you.... hearing Presence live is the stuff of dreams.  This band should be as big as Caspian.  They streamed their show tonight from the Meatlocker (video is available on Facebook) and they played Dialectics, Saudade, Absence, Dissension.

Just found Toundra! holy fucking shit!kinda like  ITTCT but with strings! albums II-IV are MAJESTIC. couldn’t really get into I but everything else after that is just beautiful! 

I'm glad someone else in here is a jamband fan :D 

 

But yes!  Toundra is incredible.  I am seeing them in a few weeks in Belgium and am so excited.  III took me a little bit to get into, but II and IV are tops.  I am really excited about the new album because "Cobra" is a great song.  I actually forgot to check out the other new track, and will be doing that once "Presence" by Shy, Low finishes playing.  You can't interrupt that song.  It is sacred.  Speaking of, if you haven't checked out Shy, Low... you need to do that too. 

 

Never thought about the similarity to ITTCT but yeah, you're right... i can see that.  Very riff-oriented.  You'd probably also like Pray For Sound if you haven't checked them out yet, although they lie more on the happy side of the riff spectrum.  Shy, Low is more in the heavy riff post-rock arena, so I think you'd like them as well.  "Presence" however is straight religious-chill post-rock glory.  It gets heavy/intense at the end, but it's not riffy like a lot of their other work.
