i think i might want to delve into this band's catalogue, any fans here and if so could you describe their sound as precisely as possible?

i'm just gonna go for it... i often play it too safe when exploring new artists/genres so i think i'll take the leap on this one

As precisely as possible? Fucking excellent.

 

Seriously, just see them whenever the chance avails itself. Buy their shit.

i'm not trying to fuck up this thread, but i've generally found most all post rock very, very easy to forget about

 

there are definite exceptions but mono hasn't proven to be one of them.

 

i don't care to investigate a lot of the newer stuff that's called post-rock, but i'll always love tortoise etc.

yeah i was gonna say, tortoise are one of the few that i really like.

 

i've always kind of disliked explosions in the sky / a silver mt. zion

 

i remember getting high and listening to do make say think a few times. they were good.

Pity the fool who thinks Mono are average

 

Their last album was mad as all fuck; epic tracks with a full orchestra and recorded by Steve Albini! Pure fucking win! But all of their records are great.

 

These guys lean a lot heavier towards classical music than any of their contemporaries (Explosions in the Sky, Pelican, Mogwai, etc) and they arrange their stuff beautifully.
