|Artists Without Buzz|
Just a list of a few albums from some artists/musicians that I don't really see a lot of here on Sputnik, but that people should definitely check out.
Incredibly relaxing, ultra-chill electronica, not to mention the implementation of the always awesome harpsichord.
|2||The Bad Plus|
For those who are into Jazz.
One of the more beautiful and memorable ambient-electronic albums I have in my library.
Omar + Cedric + Ikey = really mellow reggae
Raising Your Voice... Trying to Stop an Echo
One of the most overlooked post rock releases in the past year or so.
Because everything I have heard from him is always vibrant and gorgeous, though I enjoy this album particularly.
|7||The Mercury Program|
A Data Learn the Language
Probably one of the albums I've listened to the least but definitely some worthwhile post rock for those who are into the genre.
Some more post rock with a percussionist as the creative force behind it all, some interesting stuff certainly worth listening to.
Chandeliers in the Savannah
For those who like the Blood Brothers (and even those who don't know them), it's Johnny Whitney and Mark Gajadhar's side project. Way less intensified than the Blood Brothers, and somewhat bizarre, but in a pleasant way.
Two guitars, one drummer, mathy fun.
While it's more keyboard oriented, this is probably my first ever experience with any kind of post rock. I picked this album up randomly a couple years back when doing some listening for my school's radio station and it just blew me away.
|12||The Samuel Jackson Five|
If not for the name alone, these guys are one of my favorite post rock bands I've heard.
|13||Stars of the Lid|
The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid
Sleepy, dreamy ambient-electronic music (kind of like the album name implies). Some really good stuff though, even if it does sort of lull you into a trance.
Piano-centered, almost minimalist approach consisting of two people combining electronic and live instrumentation. Very cool and expressive.
Because its really hard to ignore something that is regarded as "an ambient-death-metal classic in the making." Seriously though, an incredibly intense ambient record.
Basically because metalheads need to listen to something other than shredtastic, riff-heavy clones. For anyone who's a fan of (especially early) Cave In.
