Saw the full, live band version of Floating Points in the US a few years back, playing stuff off Elaenia plus Kuiper. Very good. Don’t know if the full band shows up the UK so often.
Another vote for Davidoff Cool Three
on a post rock perhaps less obvious shout, fond of…
drums and tuba
years of rice and salt
paul newman - (the post rock band not saucey cool luke cassidy)
planning for burial
le reviel des tropiques
colin stetson and sarah neufeld (and obvss most of the other stuff on constellation)
red stars theory
and I won’t go in to ambient modern classical drone from stars of the lid onwards, but i’ll mention the boats (the uk duo not the oz post rock outfit who aren’t bad either) perfect background bubbling away music for getting some thinking work done too.
obvious - tortoise, gastr del sol, do make say think etc etc.
Do Make Say Think
typo’d the first one there so…
also - Juno and Evpatoria Report.
The Re-Stoned. They have an album called Stories of the Astral Lizard that is incredible. Whenever i have no idea what i want to listen to, i’ll put that album on until i figure it out.
Other notable mentions are Circles around the Sun, Da Captain Trips, Arjun, The Gold and Silver Sessions album by Elder, and Nick Millevoi.
This is a post about the fact that I also miss a band called Adebisi Shank
