This is a great introduction to the post-rock genre and really opened my eyes and ears to the depth and power of the genre. Deep Elm has a great catalog and features some front-runners of this new age of rock. It features bands like Athletics, The Appleseed Cast, Goonies Never Say Die, and Coma Recovery
