    Lamb, Zero 7, Groove Armada, Air, LemonJelly. All kinda chilled out electronica stuff. Not quite as delicate as Sigur Ros, but still good to relax to.

    Saw them Sunday at the UT Performing Arts Center, freaking amazing show.

    Add to the list:

    Album Leaf, The Timeout Drawer, M83, others that I can't think of right now.

    In the Post-Rock genre, there are a few bands, purely instrumental, that you should check out. One is Explosions In The Sky....amazing stuff. The other is Pelican. They're a little heavier (almost leaning towards slow-moving metal on some tracks, but still great and they fit nicely within that genre).

    If you wanted to venture out a bit farther, listen to Isis' Panopticon album. Not the best of vocals, but their songs are great. All at least 7 or 8 mins long....pure bliss.
