Late 90s witnessed the emergence of this trendy title when a buzzing new genre reared its head in Planet Indie, only to lose foothold over the years simply because it wasn't really descriptive enough to begin with.
It is widely believed that the term "post-rock" was coined by Simon Reynolds, one of the most important music critics of our times. He described makers of this obscure music as "experimental guitar bands who've abandoned the model of recording as a document of live performance and embraced the studio-as-instrument/sound-lab aesthetic of hip-hop and techno."
By nature, post-rock compositions reject traditional rock structures and formulas but still incorporate some of these roots into other musical genres such as electronic, experimental and jazz.
While there more acclaimed examples of this genre than included here, I tried to compile tracks in a wider range to show how influential post-rock has proved over the last decade. So, then, let's post-rock & roll.
