    Post Rock. Or, as I like to call it, Mellow Stoner Rock.

    I think I tend to prefer closer to 'post-metal'

    Isis, Mouth of the Architect and Cult of Luna and their ilk did it for me for a while, now I prefer more mellower post-metal like Leech who are my best discovery in a long time (http://www.myspace.com/leechofficial), and Long Distance Calling (can be found on Leech's Myspace top friends).

    Mogwai stopped doing it for me a while ago, and now I don't listen to much of what I used to, but if you are interested in some other 'post' bands then check out

    Coffin Dancer (Aaron Turner from Isis side project)
    Kenoma
    Rosetta (The Galilean Satelites is a wonderful album, 2 CDs of pure artistic wizardry)

    and finally

    Tides - Resurface

    Heh, post-rock :)

    Great to listen to on your own, crap for gigs. I saw Arab Strap once, it was excruciating. The set went on for 2 hours and everyone's legs were aching by the end.

    I remember another post-rock gig I went to, can't even remember who the band were now but it's the only gig I've ever been to where the entire crowd ended up sat cross-legged on the floor...

    I saw Mogwai, and they were fucking fantastic. Nobody was sitting down.

    I loved it when the crowd were shouting out requests. "PLAY YES WE ARE A LONG WAY FROM HOME."

    And Dominic just went up to the mike and said "No."

    :-D

    I think my problem was most of my post-rock gigs were bands in the "quiet/chin-stroking" subset of post-rock. I can well imagine that Mogwai would have been different - I had a mate who was in a Leeds post-rock band called Rauschen that was at the noisier end of the spectrum and they were great live.

    Oh.

    Well, Mogwai can do quiet. But they can also do awesomely, ear-piercingly loud. Often in the same track. :-D

    I had ringing in my ears for several days afterwards, and I wasn't even close to the stage.

    Funnily enough that's what my dad said when I played him a Mogwai album.

    "Who's this trying to be Hawkwind?"

    Mogwai are very loud. And awesome. They played Mogwai Fear Satan, which made me JOYFUL.

    Mouse, you were in UpCDownC etc? oo! I think they released Embers. I remember not thinking it was up to much, tbh.

    Oh, and also Envy have been going down the post rock route for a few years now and they're absolutely bloody wonderful. They're still a hardcore/screamo band at heart but stuff from their last couple of releases are spine tingling stuff.

    Best live band i've ever seen and their dvd that they released last year is epic stuff. Fans of Mogwai might recognise the vocalist Tetsuya, who features on their tracks 'I Chose Horses' which is on Mr.Beat I think.

    Mono

    Awesomest post-rock gig i ever did see.

    Well, I thought Embers was pretty....'post-rock', if you get what I mean. That formula that a heavier EITS did 8 years ago, and others did bits of before.

    I only just deleted UpCDownC off my iPod the other day when I had a ruthless cull of stuff I don't listen to enough, I liked the list of influences on your Myspace if I recall them correctly, and thought the music was promising stuff. But like Bossk and andydicktracymorgan it didn't quite hit the spot for me,

    I listened to Cinder by Dirty Three properly again, the other day. Gorgeous.

    Reminds me of The Marionette and the.. by Unwed Sailor. I have to be in the right mood but when I am, it's so nice to listen to. Great Waves is gorgeous.

    Ditto BTBAM.

    Pop due to spamming Listening Thread.

    I officially announce this is open to ambient music as well. Eluvium, Stars of the Lid, A Lily, Ramesess III, Port Royal, Tim Hecker, etc etc etc. And, to be honest, any kind of music that doesn't fit anywhere else.

    Since i'm going to bed in a jiffy i'm going to track down all these new names tomorrow after work and if I like the bands, hopefully order some new records.

    william basinski's disintegration loops I-IV are well worth checking out if you are into ambient. i've been listening to them a lot recently, quite an interesting story to their creation as well

    I'm sure I listen to PR, I can just never tell when I am :)

    Edit: I just did a not so scientific test using last.FM tags to see which bands were considered PR, and much to my surprise, Aereogramme are...well I never.

    Post-rock? I'm not done listening to rock yet, I can't be post-rock. Same goes for post-metal.

    Post-grunge can kiss my hairy sack too while they're at it.

    Mmm love a bit of post metal.

    Some others i couldn't see mentioned people might get a kick out of:
    Latitudes
    ...And So I Watch you from Afar
    Russian Circles

    Pelican must have been mentioned too right?

    Nobody mentioned The Appleseed Cast yet? I guess some of their stuff would be considered more indie or even emo, but Sagarmatha and both Low Level Owls sound pretty post-rock to me.

    They are great live. MFS has got to be the best thing I've heard live, in terms of being almost completely silent, then the LOUDEST NOISE EVAR :D Good stuff

    Also, no mention of Tortoise in a thread such as this? Not listened to much since Standards though.

    I generally prefer heavier material--Isis, Cult of Luna, Rosetta, and what have you-- but I'm also fond of more ambient/electronic stuff like
    Lights Out Asia and Hammock
