The Silver Mountain

Sunday // 3-6PM

Post-rock is a form of experimental rock characterized by the influence and use of instruments commonly associated with rock, but using rhythms and “guitars as facilitators of timbre and textures” not traditionally found in rock. Post-rock bands are often instrumental.

Sigur Rós, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Stereolab, Mogwai, Don Caballero and Tortoise are among the more prominent bands described as post-rock, but their styles are very different, despite being instrumental bands centered on guitars and drums. As such, the term has been the subject of backlash from listeners and artists alike.

Although firmly rooted in the indie or underground scene of the 1980s and early 1990s, post-rock’s style often bears little resemblance musically to that of contemporary indie rock.
