Dude, that Silver Mt. Zion record... fuck. I love it. Those violins - so melancholic.
I should really start listening to more post-rock. I've always had a hang-up about it because of the lack of vocals, but I don't really mind that anymore. I also just checked out 65daysofstatic and while they're not very depressing, I dig 'em a lot.
(Ulver and Skinless sound pretty cool too.)
