After 4 months of living with "Dust and Disquiet", I'm pretty comfortable with declaring it Caspian's best album.

It's my first Caspian album and I adore it. What's the next best?

You can't go wrong with "The Four Trees" or "Waking Season".


I tend to like waking season over dust, maybe b/c i listened to dust a little more. i also think its a little heavier too. but both along with four trees are excellent.

mogwai-atomic is awesome. those guys get better with age and never repeat themselves.

That art fits the song. For me though, that is bordering a little too close to the heavy metal style instrumental where some angsty teen is drawing pictures of Cthulhu in his room while listening to it.

New Grails is pretty good. A little different.

This is a good one.

Great piece on The Quietus today tackling one of the big issues re: the term "post rock" -- how did something that as originally conceived / argued for as a thing go from incorporating / acknowledging / working with dance and electronics in the early 90s slide into "here's our big wordless rock epic -- and here's the NEXT big wordless rock epic and..."

Without having read the piece (and I love The Quietus, I need to visit them more frequently), I've only ever taken the term "post-rock" to be shorthand for "post-modern pop/rock music." Which in my mind means that like all post-modern works for art, the creators are aware of the conventions of the medium, and subvert those conventions to do something new (or at least fresh). So while the deluge of "big wordless rock epic[s]" has certainly come a predictable trope, there are still a ton of bands delivering works that sound forward-thinking in their use of convention.

Anybody ever heard this one? The only album by Cambridge's Gwei-lo, released after the death of their guitarist, Al Brooker. Great little thing, with some similarities to other end of the '90s post rock like Mogwai and Ganger.

My appetite for unapologetically epic, bombastic music seemingly has no end.
