|He is Legend, La Dispute, The Fall of Troy, Quicksand, and At the Drive In|
|don't get la dispute's full-length, it's gay in the literal sense|
get their vancouver EP
|finch - say hello to sunshine|
fightstar - grand unification
i like be human by fightstar the best but grand uni is the most 'post hardcoreish.' all of their albums are great though.
|everything la dispute did is amazing.|
but their full length gets gayer and gayer after hearing their other stuff which is way betterrrrrrrr
|frodus, mewithoutyou's first two full-lengths, jawbox, girls against boys, nation of ulysses, the vss, roadside monument, fugazi, unwound, some other shit i'm forgettin'|
|i think all of La Dispute's stuff is gay. Especially the LP, but that doesn't mean I don't love it. |
|Here's a handful major essentials in alpha-order:|
Armchairpolitician - Seven Segment Decoder
At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command
Drive Like Jehu - Drive Like Jehu
Embrace - Embrace
Fugazi - 13 Songs
Fugazi - Repeater
Fugazi - The Argument
Jawbox - For Your Own Special Sweetheart
mewithoutYou - Brother, Sister
The Nation of Ulysses - Plays Pretty For Baby
Rites of Spring - End on End
Unwound - New Plastic Ideas
pick and choose from those, you can't go wrong
|Thursday- Full Collapse. |
|Thanks guys. I'll get to work on those. |
|c'mon sea 'catch for us the foxes' is way better than 'brother, sister' |
|SeaAnemone's recs are the bestest, but I'd add one albums to them|
Frodus - And We Washed Our Weapons in the Sea (and I'd switch out The Argument by Fugazi for End Hits, as it's my favorite from them)
|What Sea, said. Drive like Jehu.|
|americanmusic and inveigh... yeah I don't have qualms with switching either of those out... they're pretty interchangeable quality-wise to be honest... and yeah go ahead and add Frodus to the list, it's worth it. |
|Drive Like Jehu - Yank Crime, Thursday - Waiting, As Cities Burn - Come Now Sleep|
|The Saddest Landscape, in a way.|
Horns Become Halos.
|Cool. That will definitely get me started. |
|Lemme see if there's anything anybody missed here...|
Don Caballero - "What Burns Never Returns" (arguably "post-hardcore", more on the mathy side)
Hot Snakes - "Audit in Process"
Husker Du - "Zen Arcade" (early development of post-hardcore. Amazing album though.)
June of '44 - Engine Takes to Water" (Sounds just like Slint, though more aesthetically hardcore)
Nation of Ulysses - "13 Point Diagram to Destroy America"
Pitchfork - "Eucalyptus + Saturn Outhouse"
Rodan - "Rusty"
Shellac - "1000 Hurts"
Victor! Fix the Sun - "Retractable Claws"
Fugazi - "Red Medicine" (their best album, imho)
|"June of '44 - Engine Takes to Water"|
Yeah, I'm seconding that. I wish they got more recognition on this site for being awesome.
|True dat. I may write a review for that album pretty soon here. They basically sound exactly like Slint, but who cares? Slint only made two albums, the world is in desperate need of that amazing sound they created for "Spiderland". |
|June of '44 is awesome. |
You guys would like Sweep the Leg Johnny if you haven't heard 'em.
|Just wiki'd them, they seem interesting. I'll look em' up today.|
At The Drive-In
(not technically post hardcore, but Mars Volta Deloused in the Comatorium)
|Also...when BurningApollo said He Is Legend, he probably meant 'I Am Hollywood'. That's an important specification to make.|
While you're at it, try Beloved - 'Failure On', as well.
|While you're at it, try Beloved - 'Failure On', as well. |
Also, Dead Poetic
|Oh hey, Consciousness Removal Project.|
I forgot about them, until one of their songs just played on shuffle in my library.
Sort of post-metal sounding though, not entirely post-hardcore... It's like in between the two.
|AT THE DRIVE-IN - RELATIONSHIP OF COMMAND|
THANK ME LATER
|2 and 3 are quality|
|Also, Alexisonfire - 'Watch Out!' and 'Crisis'|
|jawbox - for your own special sweetheart|
glassjaw - our color green
fugazi - 13 songs + red medicine
at the drive-in - vaya ep
|From Autumn to Ashes - Holding a wolf by the ears|
|Almost forgot Dance Gavin Dance! Start with Downtown Battle Mountain and listen chronologically from there|
|Shadows Chasing Ghosts|
almost metalcore tho
|I second the Vaya EP. Shit's hella dope.|
|quicksand - the slip|
|Defeater, and any other band that's part of the wave. Throw some The Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower in there too if you like jazz with your hxc.|
|On The Might Of Princes - Sirens|
The Fall Of Troy - S/T + Ghostship Demos
Vaux - There Must Be Someway To Stop Them
Blakfish - See You In Another City + Champions
The Bled - Pass the Flask
The Jonbenet - The Plot Thickens
Daughters - Hell Songs
Bear vs Shark - Terrorhawk
Thursday - War All The Time
Post-Hardcore is such a diverse genre. I guess these all technically count, but they are all pretty different. All of these bands/albums inspired me to be the musician I am today. Thanks for reppin allb!
I wouldn't say they're "post" hardcore but close enough, they rule face.
|and Fightstar - Be Human is really good
"Watch Out" by Alexisonfire is a straight up classic|
|oh cool the guitarist from A Lot Like Birds stopped by this list|
|jacob9years is him. |
Tides of Man
The Felix Culpa
Poison the Well
Victor! fix the sun
Just Like Vinyl
I am the Ocean
I am Alaska
The Venetia Fair
A Voice like Rhetoric
Look What I did
The Hills Have Eyes
Take One Car
Oh No, It's Birds
We Were Skeletons
Circle Takes the Square
