List awesome bands you find in here. Add a genre as best you can and whether or not it's free. Feel free to post RIYLs if you want, too. I'm making this because bandcamp is one heck of a jungle to browse through when you're not looking for any specific band. EDIT: Do not use this thread as an excuse to self-promote.

http://gates.bandcamp.com/
post-rock/emo, free

http://theamericandollar.bandcamp.com/
post-rock

http://theearthisaman.bandcamp.com/
post-rock/instrumental emo, free

EDIT 2: I noticed this thread gets a lot of views, but not a whole lot of the viewers post. I post stuff in here pretty often and I would really appreciate it if some of you lurkers did too so that there would be even more bands for us to share.
