We’re big fans of the massive instrumental sound of the post-rock genre here at six. From Mogwai’s monstrous but melodic arrangements, to Slint’s haunting slow builders. Post-rock music evokes feeling through sound, mostly without the aid of lyrics; meticulous arrangements invite us to translate the sonic into emotion. Take the six below as a taster of the genre, or if you’re already versed check out some of our favourites and see how they stack up to yours!
Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Moya
Explosions In The Sky – Snow And Lights
Mogwai – Mogwai Fear Satan
