26 May 2009, 22:09 by martwizzleHinterland Festival – Friday 1st May 2009.
Day two of Scotland's first major “urban festival” promised another chance for fans to see bands who they might have missed the previous day and boasted another full day of brilliant up and coming bands from across the world.
For this writer, Friday started with a brief encounter with Remember Remember – the brainchild of formed Multiplies member Graham Ronald. However, as I arrived to the Arches after the start of his performance and again, via the wrong entrance, I was out of breath and forced to the back of the room as the first beautiful strands of Up In A Blue Light were beginning. Saxophone, Flugel horn, violin and guitar interweaving and creating wonderful textures and sounds. With his self titled debut album released on Mogwai's Rock Action label, Remember Remember is truly one to watch. However, on this occasion, given the crowdedness of the venue, I decided to hotfoot it to another venue.
2 May 2008, 11:52 by esc4p1stA showcase for two of the most acclaimed post-rock releases of 2008, last night's concert at Henriksberg had a lot to live up to. At 10pm, EF squirmed their way on to the minimal stage to open the evening. Although I haven't really taken either Give Me Beauty... Or Give Me Death or I Am Responsible to heart, when EF select tracks for a medium-length set, playing their most memorable numbers, their quality as a band is undeniable. My favorite tracks, Bear and Hello Scotland, were the highlights of the set, but my familiarity with all of the songs made this a memorable show, much more so than when I saw them at Sticky Fingers three months ago.
02. Hello Scotland
04. A tailpiece
05. Tomorrow My Friend...
This Will Destroy You! The name carries a certain dignity, a promise of an energetic delivery. And while the band gave us a lot, their self-titled debut album promised so much more. The opener A Three-Legged Workhorse distills the formula of the post-rock crescendo to its bare essence…

Two great post-rock names went to our town. One awesome band from Poland playing "classic" post-rock - California Stories Uncovered and the great one from US - This Will Destroy You. I didn't want to miss anything, so I rushed into the auditorium and stayed right in the second line.
Guys from Poland started playing at about 8PM. I didn't recognize, what they played. And believe me, I know their EP very well :) Their songs were just furious, full of energy. I had a creeps few times. Their end and Untitled 4 was just the most awesome thing, what I‘ve heard for a long time. Everyone applauded. They weren‘t just support band, they were second one. In my opinion :)
I went to buy some things, but when I came back, auditorium was quite full. I asked some guys before me, if they could let me. They said no. I replied that I'm staff and I'm taking pictures for organizer. They said no. So I had to stay in back and take photos in a horrible quality. …
21 Apr 2008, 19:05 by JayJayDWer immer das Programm für diesen Abend zusammengestellt hat, muss wohl mindestens besoffen gewesen sein. Dem filigranen, atmosphärischen Post-Rock von This Will Destroy You den rotzig-derben Folk Punk von Mischief Brew voranzustellen, war - gelinde gesagt - schon ein wenig gewagt. Zu den letzteren äußere ich mich lieber nicht, das ist nicht meine Welt.
Leider war bei This Will Destroy You der Sound ausgesprochen schlecht: für den winzigen Raum zu laut, dazu undifferenziert und breiig. Die wunderbaren Gitarrenlinien verloren sich daher häufig im Krach, und das Schlagzeug war viel zu sehr in den Vordergrund gemischt und dominant. Andererseits hatten die mit deutlich mehr Druck als auf den Alben gespielten Stücke eine tolle hypnotische Qualität, noch gesteigert dadurch, dass sie häufig fliessend ineinander übergingen. So war man nach gefühlten drei Stücken überrascht, dass es plötzlich schon zu Ende sein sollte. Zum Glück gaben sie eine ausgiebige Zugabe und endeten mit dem genialen There Are Some Remedies Worse Than the Disease.
10 Dec 2007, 00:16 by thatsneakyfoxOkay. So basically I love post-rock titles.
I will add to this at some point. But you know how post-rock song names always have this certain feel to them? Here's some good titles:
I Can't Feel My Hand Anymore, It's Alright, Sleep Still
Don't Be Afraid, You Have Just Got Your Eyes Closed
Weeping Rock, Rock
Mopish Morning, Halation Wiper
The Flames Beyond the Cold Mountain
I Swallowed Hard, Like I Understood
Sisters! Brothers! Small Boats of Fire Are Falling From the Sky!
This Gentle Hearts Like Shot Bird's Fallen
Fire Flies and Empty Skies
Beyond the Dying Light
She Dreamt She Was A Bulldozer, She Dreamt She Was Alone In An Empty Field
May Nothing But Happiness Come through Your Door
Yes! I Am A Long Way From Home
A Cheery Wave From Stranded Youngsters
There Are Some Remedies Worse Than the Disease
The Soundless Dawn Came Alive as Cities Began to Mark the Horizon
Alone and Unaware, the Landscape Was Transformed in Front of Our Eyes
9 Oct 2007, 11:58 by LonerRDI am tired of explaining ignorant idiots the basic meanings of life. I don't boast that I've discovered them. Somehow it's sad that people are too blind, too aggressive, too dumb to try to understand anything. Of course it's easier to avoid thinking, easier to show no respect or lack any common sense or understanding. We are trained for not thinking twice. We are trained to obey and behave like beasts, giving a damn about communities or other people.
Whenever I talk to people they usually tell me that I am very negative. Those showing some concern ask me if I am depressed. I read that in any form of depression the number of neurotransmitters (like serotonin) is too low or too high. It's still not clear if this causes a depression or if it is a side-effect. I don't want to consider my way of thinking as a dysfunction in my brain. Basically being negative is no disease. It's an attitude caused by observing everyday life. Evolution - especially the human evolution - shows progress in knowledge…
24 Feb 2006, 21:24 by MrLaminar(so you know it's going to be a great playlist)
I was thinking of a good playlist to introduce someone to post-rock. I came up with this.
The Kidnapper Bell
Ratts of the Capital
Have You Passed Through This Night?
hashima, and a huge smile for mitsubishi mining co. pt.3
Things Are Bigger Than They Appear
There Are Some Remedies Worse Than the Disease
drink a pint of blood a day
The Sixth Extinction Crept Up Slowly, Like the Sunlight Through the Shutters, As We Looked Back in Regret (what a ridiculously long title)
The Way She Said Go
With a Red Suit You Will Become a Man
This is by no means complete, but it contains pretty much my favorite tracks. I would do a taglist, but most of those items are not streamable anyway.
