I was looking around at some of the clubs in the forums and this sounded like the only one worth taking a look at. It's cool to see other fans on here. I just had to say one thing. I noticed a couple different people talking about post-rock and shoegaze as different genres or something. That's just not true. Post-rock is just a very broad category of music that focuses largely on atmosphere and experimentation, but there's been a bunch of movements within post-rock, including dream pop and shoegaze. In any case, I'm surprised no one brought up another very related, though somewhat smaller movement within post-rock, slowcore. Bands like Low in the 90s, who wanted to make much slower, quieter and more atmospheric rock, in direct opposition to the grunge movement, with its speed and aggression and loudness. One of the few rock movements where distortion wasn't really used. Lots of reverb, though, and usually really depressing/melancholy sound and sometimes lyrics. It's good stuff. If so inclined, one could actually draw a lot of parallels between slowcore and funeral doom, despite some of their obvious differences. Slowcore bands are still around, but it's a pretty deeply underground movement, although you can still find bigger popular music critics talking about it here and there. Some bands, like Low, are pretty big, too, I guess, or at least kinda well known. Like funeral doom, lot of people just find it boring, I guess. Their loss. Anyways, I'm a fan of post-rock, incl. shoegaze and dream pop and much more, as well as liking a lot of music outside post-rock, too.
Here's an older Low music video:
Here's a music video from their new album, which is a decidedly much happier song:
