Artists with a "Post rock Country" sound?

Postby bhholmes20 » Fri Nov 13, 2015 11:45 am

I know that genre name sounds stupid...

I'm looking for artists/albums that have country vibes (steel pedal type stuff) but have a lot of ambience and your basic post rock bullshit. Big build ups. Soft parts then really loud parts. Long songs. Instrumental sections.

Kinda looking for a sound like from this much older J Tillman live set https://youtu.be/Z1pbUZNQU7kkk

Any recommendations?

I don't really know what Post Rock is, but wouldn't Futurebirds fit this bill?

Futurebirds was my first thought too

Not that they're at all post rock but they do have a lot of ambience and build ups and pedal steel.

They're all-instrumental though.

The simple little break and comeback at 4:20ish gets me.

Japancakes use a lot of pedal steel. But they're all instrumental too.

Calexico's "Garden Ruin" probably has a few tunes.

Edit button. Don't listen to "Cruel/Bisbee Blue"...I meant to post this one:

Fucking edit button! :x :x :x

This is from a YouTube comment on "All Systems Red", so it is correct:
Post-Rock at its absolute finest! Could listen to this all day long, following my shadow into these intriguing moments over and over again...

I would check out some of Daniel Lanois' stuff too. It's not as much post rock, but it is ambient and he does some really cool things with lap steel and pedal steel. Some of his stuff has vocals and some is instrumental. His work with Brian Eno is good too.

Would Lambchop fit the script? Always dug what they do.

I should have listed this in the description. Perfect band for this style.
