If You Like This...

...then you might like this. I'm picking one album that I thoroughly enjoy (that seems rather popular on this site), and presenting one of a similar vibe with much, much less recognition on here. I'm not going for blatant style rip-offs; I'm trying to match the mood.
1Swans
The Seer


If you like post-apacolyptic, eerie, dissonant, atypical arrangements...you might like:
2Wovenhand
Blush Music


Entrancing percussion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tkit6DB57rc More drone/Swansy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gplY-Z97Zx8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfaqoBEpvKE
3The National
Alligator


If you like Matt's vocal delivery, stripped/direct instrumentation, sparse but relatable lyrics, the raw production of Alligator...you might like:
4American Music Club
Mercury


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfMyLocLDC8
5Unwound
Leaves Turn Inside You


If you like that switch between dynamic groovers and moody, stretched atmospheres, paired with that inexplicably mellow production, you might like:
6Lowercase
The Going Away Present


More straight forward groover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17MEnZk68kY Beginning reminds me of LTIY "December": https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=P1wZZw7s-oU Longer, more atmospheric: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYmKm4wvStU
7Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...


Well, if you like that particular Godspeed-sound of post rock, you might like...
8The Ascent of Everest
How Lonely Sits the City


I won't lie, 1:30 sounds a lot like that plucking sequence in "Static": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LV5X0p3Gw5o
9Boards of Canada
Music Has the Right to Children


If you like lush, organic, and daydreamy, but are tired of being recommended Tycho, you might like:
10Lone
Lemurian


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zL_OZs--kNE
11Slint
Spiderland


If you like the Slint-esque, not easily definable type bands that sit in their own little post rock corner (like Rodan or Polvo), you might like:
12June of 44
Four Great Points


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCcFpWa9Bs8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxF2xMHugw8

Invitation Songs

The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid
