    More progressive metal than post rock but it hits all the marks. Seems like a great summer day type of album. Reminds me of a less mathy Strawberry Girls or even the recent Vasudeva.

    This actually seems pretty cool of an idea

    This EP has a ton packed into it: Post, Progressive and Dreampop. Also, loving the vocals. The band is out of British Columbia.
    Released 1/1.

    I stopped getting notifications for this thread so missed this discussion! My favourites from last year:

    1) Caspian - On Circles



    This was undoubtedly my favourite album of the year. I played On Circles to death this year and I'm still finding new ways to love it despite listening to it 59 times in total (thanks to last.fm for that scary insight). Caspian are always a completely different beast live and I absolutely cannot wait to hear these songs live when touring eventually becomes a reality again.

    2) Abby Gundersen - Sleep Comes Then I Wake



    This is probably more classical than post-rock, but screw it. It certainly demonstrates a lot of post-rock characteristics and I think a lot of people in here would find something to love. Sleep Comes Then I Wake is pure bliss from start to finish. Listening to this album is almost meditative and it became part of my daily ritual while working from home to start my day with this album. When the first piano keys hit on the opening track I can almost hear and smell the coffee percolator and feel myself gradually slipping into a creative and peaceful state.

    3) Coldbones - The Cataclysm



    It seems fitting that in this dumpster fire of a year that one of my favourite post-rock albums was the one that serves as a score to the end of the world. The Cataclysm is an album about the end of days - split down the middle in to two acts - The Flooding of the World and The Burning of the Earth. It evokes this imagery in vivid detail with swelling and explosive sequences across the two acts. It is an absolute triumph of an album and one that pushes Coldbones to forefront of the genre.

    Progressive/Djent but with a lean towards post rock from New York. Very clean production.

    One man project from New Jersey. Combined elements of Post Rock, Ambient and orchestral. Very uplifting and motivating. Even the song titles alone make you feel empowered. VERY GOOD!

    Regiments - Moving Forward

    California based band and there is a lot going on here: Shoegaze, post rock and math. All the lyrics are in Japanese so you can focus on the music (unless you understand Japanese of course!) Really fun three song single/EP.

    Kyozo - EP 01

    This one is a bit difficult to describe but falls under post rock with some ambient and alternative rock undertones. The band is based out of Serbia and it’s a really diverse EP.

    Demetrin - Miris Mira EP

    Post rock with a stoner lean from Argentina. Really good stuff. It’s a shame it’s only two tracks.

    Triciclo - Abya

    This is REALLY good. Instrumental Post rock/metal from Russia. If you enjoy bands like Deafheaven/Alcest but can’t get past the vocals, this could definitely be your thing.

    Powder! Go Away - Jol

    Do you like your post metal served with a side of black and doom? This is some very good stuff.

    The band is out of Romania

    Kultika- Capricorn Wolves



    RIYL Katatonia, Cult of Luna

    One man project from California (Ryan Hernandez). A really interesting take on post rock with elements of Alt rock and ambient. Good stuff.
