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

Recommended Posts

I dip my toe in the post-rock pool from time to time, though I tend toward prog rather than metal/doom/etc. This is the stuff I’ve listened to recently that’s impressed me:

 

https://thenightwatch.bandcamp.com/album/an-embarrassment-of-riches

 

https://myriaddrone.bandcamp.com/album/arka-morgana

 

https://soldathans.bandcamp.com/album/es-taut

 

Related question - are there blogs people here follow (or run) to hear new stuff/reviews in this genre? I like Echoes and Dust and Everything is Noise and The Prog Mind for prog, but I’d be interested to hear about more.

Haven’t been on the website in a while but Arctic Drones is solid.

Didn't Arctic Drones close up shop last summer? Might have even been before that. It was definitely the best post-rock/instrumental blog out there. No idea what happened but they just stopped posting and it looks like the website is public domain now.

 

I mostly just browse the relevant tags on Bandcamp and the wherepostrockdwells YouTube for new stuff. Heavy Blog is Heavy is probably my favorite online music review/blog site. @dawhizz

Dang looks like you’re right.  Their IG page hasn’t posted since August.  Wonder what happened.

Soldat Hans is one of the greatest hidden gems nowadays I think, es taut is a perfect combination of post metal/dark jazz and Isis vocals. I begged the band for months to send me the super heavy deluxe concrete version of the LP and they finally did, so I am beyond happy now.

Had no idea this was even going to happen but a new Holy Fawn EP just leaked. 15 minutes long, 3 songs.

Holy shit this is awesome.  Thanks for posting.  It’s on Spotify.  Basically 2 songs & an interlude.  But I’ve been dying for that studio Blood Pact since seeing at Post Fest.  Song of the damn year already.

Came here to say this.  Really dig the first song too though.  These kids can do no wrong.

afaik Arctic Drones just succumbed to overload....  money, time, management, etc.  Was run by one dude really and it just got too much.  Right now, your best best for a blog is Heavy Blog's Post-rock Post or whatever they call it.  My buddy David writes for them. 

This Soldat Hans album is fucking.... interesting.  It's achingly beautiful, and sounds kind of like Godspeed meets Isis haha. 


EDIT - this Soldat Hans album is fucking amazing.  Holy shit.

For me this album was like hearing shels' Plains Of The Purple Buffalo for the first time, maybe due to trumpet usage and ethereal atmosphere. For sure it is coming from the doom side of the genre but still fascinating.

new Sleepmakeswaves has me extremely hopeful.  MOBO is a good album but not at all what I enjoy from them.  I don't like the math/djenty thing they started towards.  This new song is very reminiscent of their post-rock roots.  I like it a lot.

Just looked at the line-up for Arctangent this year and super pumped that The Samuel Jackson Five are apart of the lineup so hoping that means new album time! (Also Totorro appear to be touring again so maybe new material there but wrong thread)

I just finally bought the Samuel Jackson Five boxset yesterday and now I see they are doing shows again, what a great match of happenings! Fingers crossed for a new album.

This is looooking very likely. Just found this recent live set with some new stuff in there AND MISSING THIRD GUITARIST *gasp*

[PS: how nice is that boxset?! I must've spun Goodbye Melody Mountain a million times now]

I’m finally breaking up the ITTCT collection.  Keeping a copy of everything but unloading as much as I can.  Not looking to give stuff away but willing to bundle if anyone is interested.  Hit me up.  Giving you first dibs but will probably get on Discogs this week too.

man I wish that band still existed.  David keeps dropping cryptic hints that they're working on stuff but i donnoooooo

Who knows.  All they do is post stupid tree photos every couple months on IG & literally every time people reply with “NeW aLbUm????!!!11” even though they’ve done that for like 5 years lol
