Neil Kulkarni’s New Nineties
It’s funny that Neil Kulkarni‘s A New Nineties series of articles has coincided with Post-Rocktoberfest 2011, even though (or maybe particularly because) he altogether disavows the term “post-rock”. Still, with excellent features on Main, Disco Inferno and Insides, it’s hard to deny that UK post-rock – or whatever you want to call it – is the central focus of this series. Essential reading over at The Quietus.
Also coinciding with Post-Rocktoberfest, a neat little blog post on Papa Sprain’s Flying to Vegas EP.
Meanwhile, here are some quick links for those of you who (shame on you) haven’t been keeping up with Post-Rocktoberfest this year:
- Three mix CDs: UK Post-Rock Vol. 7, UK Post-Rock Vol. 8 and US Post-Rock Vol. 1
- Flying Saucer Attack: An Appreciation
- Kelvox1 – Grazed Red (a really great contemporary UK post-rock album)
- Disco Inferno – The Five EPs (song by song)
And that’s about it for this year! Can’t wait for Post-Rocktoberfest 2012.
