• Seems like i will be pretty original

    For me, the first post-rock experience was "Submerged Universe" by Three Steps To The Ocean. I was soooooo thrilled...

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor or God Is An Astronaut...i can`t recollect precisely. The only thing that I remember for certain - i was surprising.... Surprisingly beautifully and unusually for me...so... .

    GY!BE - "Sunshine + Gasoline", but I didn't appreciate it at the time. About a year and a half later I heard A Silver Mt Zion's "Born into Trouble as the Sparks Fly Upward", loved it, found out that they came out of GYBE, and realized that I loved their stuff, too.

    second opinion

    Does growing up with Pink Floyd count?

    I love the sprawling interludes, and lyric-less tracks just as much as the rest of it. Earlier Tracks like "Careful with that Axe, Eugene", "Set The Controls for the Heart of the Sun", even "Echoes" have some post rock elements. Songs like "One of These Days", "Cluster One", "Marooned" and parts of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" captivated me as a kid.

    Less than a year ago, my eyes were opened to the awesomeness that is Post-Rock via GY!BE She Dreamt She Was A Bulldozer.... but I think I enjoyed it so much because of the Floyd that I grew up with...

    Mogwai.. i loved to her "The Sun smells too loud" and so I got interested in that whole Postrock Thing...

  • "Echoes" from Pink Floyd, it's one of the most amazing songs i've ever heard, I think it has alot of Post Rock elements.
    But when the first post-rock song I heard before getting way too interested in the genre was from God Is An Astronaut.

    Sigur Ros but I didn't pay them much attention at that moment

    I fell in love with post-rock when I first listened to God is an Astronaut, now I'm kinda obsessed with Mono

    I remember listening to God is an Astronaut ages before knowing what post-rock actually was (and really liking it), but the first post-rock band(s) I feel in love with when I understood what post-rock was were 65daysofstatic and Sigur Rós.

    Sigur Rós blew my mind when I first heard them. I still feel it's the first listen each time I listen to Ágætis Byrjun.

    Sit at desk and lol.

    Sigur Ros

    I think A LOT of people get their first start with Sigur Ros.

    I started with Ágætis byrjun, personally. I eventually moved to Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, and Goodspeed You! Black Emperor. And I've only moved out from there.

    Mogwai. But I didn't know what it was - so I just kind of forgot about it.
    Then I listened to Godspeed You! Black Emperor's Lift your Skinny Fists like Antennas to Heaven album and my eyes were open.
