Post rock is a genre that I absolutely love. Largely instrumental, it’s something that I’ll always be in the mood to listen to. Which is good because a lot of my favorite bands have some post rock influences (regardless of their genre). Bands like Explosions in the Sky, Gates, and Sigur Rós are what I typically listen to within the genre, so the finds of this Bandcamp Adventure will largely reflect that. So enjoy your new studying music! Or meditation music, if you’re into that.

Ochmoneks – Remember Me When You’re Turning Keys

A mix of post rock-ish songs and typical rock.

Aura Form – Vesica Pisces
tags: experimental, atmospheric, drone, post rock, shoegaze, soundscape
There’s only one track for now, but it’s definitely the sound I associate with post rock. Very atmospheric and calming.

Canopy – The Healing Seasons (2016 Remaster)
Eau Claire, Wisconsin
tags: ambient, downtempo, dream pop, drone, instrumental, minimal, post rock, shoegaze, soundscape
Really calming (like pretty much everything else on this list). I could definitely just space out to this and get lost in whatever I’m doing.

The Comforters – Comforters EP
tags: rock, dream pop, indie rock, post rock
A bit more uptempo than the last one, but it’s really relaxing and pretty sounding! So listen to it!

Killing a Cloud – Here.
experimental, progressive rock, instrumental, math rock, post rock
More downtempo, ambient post rock. They are longer song formats (7 minutes plus) and there are some sampled (?) voices here and there which is always really cool.

Living Under Drones – Living Under Drones
tags: experimental, instrumental, noise, post rock, drone
Instrumental post rock builds with vocal samples and longer song formats? Sign me up.

Jacob In The Floorboards – There Is Only Light
tags: ambient, post rock
The trend for this list is “bands you can study to, drive to, or fall asleep to”. Reminder to not drive and sleep unless you have one of those cars from iRobot. Really relaxing ambient music.

tags: ambient, post rock, ambient guitar, atmospheric, chillout, collaboration, guitar, instrumental, meditation, new age, relaxation, shoegaze, soundscape, space rock
Really, really, really chill music. It’s very guitar focused (which is cool cause guitar player ayyy lmao).

Forgotten Fields – Airship
tags: ambient, electronic, experimental, post rock
There are only two tracks (so far), but it’s a relaxing mix of typical post rock and some electronic stuff.

Verdant Grey – Apologies and Afterthoughts (EP)
tags: alternative, ambient, rock, post rock, shoegaze
POST ROCK WITH SOME VOCALS FUCK YEAH! The vocals are definitely not the focus of this. Which is something I always love. They just add to the overall soundscape.

Minoria – Electrify
tags: cinematic, experimental, instrumental, post rock, rock, ambient, experimental rock
Really nice instrumental cinematic post rock. If you like Explosions in the Sky at all, you’ll definitely LOVE this.

White Cube – Weird Spheres
tags: alternative, ambient, experimental, ambient guitar, atmospheric, improvisation, indie, minimalist, post rock
Music solely composed of guitars and effects. It’s really relaxing and like everything else on this list, you can easily space out to it. Side project of musicformessier and Eensdenkend

Lanayah – North Pinion
Santa Barbara, California
tags: rock, ambient, hardcore, post metal, post rock, shoegaze
It’s like cloudkicker, but with screams thrown into it. I really like it.

Khamsin – Let Me See Clearly
tags: alternative, indie, instrumental, math rock, post rock, post hardcore
There is only one track for the album, but based off the tags I’m assuming it will be a mix of vocal and instrumental stuff. The vocals are really nice too. Stoked to hear the rest of it!

Ghostronaut – Galaxia
tags: experimental, ambient, electronic, classical, glitch, neoclassical, piano, post rock
It’s really relaxing, and there’s piano (which is always great).
