    So what do you think? Does anyone have bands that sound similar to them?

    I love Explosions in the Sky. I have all of their albums. One of the best instrumental bands I've ever listened to. Hands down.

    I went through a phase of loving instrumental bands and downloaded 'The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place' and I've got to say it is excellent.

    If you like Explosions in the Sky I'm pretty sure that you'll love God is an Astronaut. They're easily my favourite post-rock band. Others you might like: Mogwai, Mooncake, The Samuel Jackson Five, Laura. Laura are from Melbourne, Australia. Where I live :)

    GodSpeed You! Black Emperor are a pretty good post-rock recommendation if anybody wants one. Oh, and 65daysofstatic.
