    Time for some post rock.... recommended album titles are in ()...

    Mono (Walking Cloud And Deep Red Sky, Flag Fluttered And The Sun Shined)
    Pelican (The Fire in our throats will beckon the thaw)
    Explosions In The Sky (The earth is not a cold dead place)
    Isis (Panopticon)
    Red Sparowes (At The Soundless Dawn)
    Mogwai (Mr. Beast)
    Sigur Ros ( () )

    Keep in mind that with the aforementioned bands, vocals are either at a minimum or non-existent....but the music is stunning. Let me know what you think...if you need, I will provide individual song titles to check out. Post rock has somewhat of a learning curve to get into, but it's an amazing and powerful sub-genre.

    The Walkmen
    Yo La Tengo
    Stars
    The Wrens
    Spoon
    Wolf Parade
    Sleater Kinney

    Some 'post-rock':

    ...and some 90's shoegazers for good measure:

    My logic is that, given that I like most of the bands you listed, you'll like most of my suggestions :wiggle:

    Great list!

    Also... I wouldn't call Pink Floyd post-rock... more like pop-prog rock if anything.

    If you are interesting in non-traditional rock strutures, check out some classic progressive rock.

    Yes - The Yes Album, Fragile, Close to the Edge, Tales from Topographic Oceans
    King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King, Red, Larks Tongues in Aspic

    If you like new wave, King Crimson has 3 albums made in that genre as well, "Three of a Perfect Pair", "Beat" and "Discipline".

    Talking Heads is another good new wave band. Devo, The Cure...

    television - you cant listen to post rock if you arent going to listen to television. crucial jams. on that note:

    this heat
    can
    sonic youth
    violent femmes (i should dare say that i am shocked that people think 'gone daddy gone' is a gnarles barkley original)
    teenage fanclub
    brian jonestown massacre
    t. rex (bowie pop)
    sun city girls
    the records--specifically the single 'starry eyes' featured on the UK Pop II (1978-79) compilation; arguably one of the best pop songs ever written.

    Oh baby, this is right up my alley.

    I'm not going to list fifty bands for you. BUT if you like ATDI... BEAR VS SHARK and DRIVE LIKE JEHU.

    Bear vs Shark is easily my favorite band at the moment, if my username didn't give it away.
