In Defense of the Genre (No Pun Intended)

|Not really sure how or why, but I've fallen in love with the genre of Post-Rock. I never really used to be into this style of music. I honestly found the slow-building crescendos, ambient overtones, and the lack of vocals boring, and uninteresting. Perhaps I didn't notice that this music literally is therapy. Maybe due to my stubbornness, I overlooked the innate ethereal beauty involved with writing such passionate and complex music. But now, bands/artists such as Explosions in the Sky, Moving Mountains, Isis, Sigur Ros, The Album Leaf, and others have decided that it's quite alright to hog my computer's internal hard-drive with their 80-minute long albums filled with 10-minute tracks. I confess that as long as this particular realm of music remains relatively underground, then it will have the audacity to live long and prosper. |
Oh happy delay!!
