Top 10 Favorite Post Rock Records

A busy schedule has delayed today top 10. I’m going with my favorite post rock/instrumental albums. You can argue that some of these records don’t belong as “post rock” albums and it’s probably fair and to be honest I could probably done a top 20 albums just off the top of my head. Post rock is probably my favorite genre of music (although hardcore is right there). Enjoy.

10. Rachel’s – Systems/Layers

While I know the general public opinion is that Selenography is Rachel’s best album, but it was never as pleasing a listen to me as Systems/Layers was. Systems/Layers is such a pretty record and an easy listen. Water from the Same Source, Last Things Last, and NY Snow Globe are all highlights.

    You ever listen to Pelican? Definitely one of my favorite post-rock/metal bands. “Forecast For Today” is one of the coolest instrumental songs I've ever heard.

    I like Pelican. I think they're a much better live band though. I could've put Russian Circles on this list too.

    Hammock is pretty cool thanks for the recommendation. Anything new from 2011 come out yet you can recommend?
