Most seem to be offshore but there are a few American bands I really like.
Karma To Burn from West Virginia has been around forever.
Pelican from Chicago is pretty cool. Russian Circles also from Chicago rocks out.

IAH from Argentina is pretty new and just released another album that I'll be playing for a bit.
I really like these guys too and would like to see them live.

Not sure what Post Rock is,

however,

when Instrumental is mentioned, I think

King Crimson
Jeff Beck
Frank Zappa


not always in that order,


I'm on another forum (gunboards) were discussions are held from time to time on music, and have heard some very interesting stuff like you posted that I cannot remember the name of the bands,

Not sure who coins all these terms, most I have to look up.
I always just call rock n roll with no vocals Instrumental.

But in the tag line for bands it can have a dozen different names.
Who knows what they'll call it in another 10 years.

Don't know if they qualify as 'post-rock' but, I've been listening to "The Brian Jonestown Masscre" quite a bit.

Yeah, Houston's own Khruangbin are good and an interesting twist on familiar themes. It's funny that they wear matching wigs when performing as this act.



I'm a long time Mogwai fan. They're Scotish, from Glasgow, and their music sounds like it.

How deep must the rabbit hole be to find this... stuff?

Post-Rock the term was coined in the late 90s, and generally refers to atypical (primarily)-Instrumental Rock that's been released since the year 2000, and it's both a useful and necessary distinction for the ways in which these sorts of bands *break* the normal, standard Rock formula, especially in longer form songs.

Psychedelic Rock is different from Blues Rock which is different from Red Dirt which is different from Indie Rock which is different from Alt Rock which is different from Hard Rock (which grew into Metal and its subgenres), etc.

Most of these subgenre labels grow organically, often from the/an area where it started or was especially popular, or from some DJ, or an article in Rolling Stone or some other music publication with reviews.

The rabbit hole is quite deep and quite wide, just in Western Music from, say, 1900 forward. There is an enormous amount of music out there, of many many varieties.

Niches within niches, turtles all the way down.

King Crimson is Prog Rock, for instance. Tool is a sort of Art Rock, Prog Rock, Metal hybrid. Metallica is Heavy Metal / Thrash or Skate Metal or Bay Area Metal.

No real mystery, the term Post-Rock didn't really catch on until around 2000 despite an earlier origin.

It's also often more of an umbrella term that refers to a group of specific subgenres, such as modern Psychedelic Rock and modern Surf Rock and so on, collectively. That way one can talk about both Mogwai and Khruangbin who sound as different as they do similar yet still belong together broadly.

Also, these things are Descriptive, not Prescriptive.

They're just attempts to describe and group things. There's overlap, but it all works quite well.

Only 20 companies own the 3000 most popular radio stations in the US, and of those 20 companies - only 4 of them own the vast majority of the total, all basically playing the same stuff over and over and over.

So four companies own about 90% of the popular radio stations, and on this 90% of all popular radio stations they only even play 2% to maybe 25% of the available music in a given genre or group of them.

Most people, unless they dig for it, will never even hear 75+% of the music that's already out there. I love music, and keep up with a lot of it, and yet - hardly a month goes by that someone doesn't introduce me to something I've never heard, and oftentimes it's a few to many years old, and related to two artists I already like or something.

You make an excellent point. Well put.
