    Explosions in the sky

    My new favorite band, something about them just keeps me playing them over and over again.

    Official website

    Some of their songs:

    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.

    I like them. I've been getting into post-rock/instrumental music more lately.

    http://www.myspace.com/thiswilldestroyyou are my favourite.

    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.
