The Tryout: This Will Destroy You
Post-rock does suffer from the fact that most of the bands sound exactly alike but if you like the genre, then that isn't really a problem. It's kind of like saying most classical music sounds exactly the same. I tend to find one band and latch onto them for a while (Explosions in the Sky and Mono being my faves) but one that fell through the cracks and I recently rediscovered via my ITunes shuffling to a couple of their songs is This Will Destroy You. The band was brought to my attention by Reader #3, who was wowed by their song "The Mighty Rio Grande" that appeared at the end of the movie Moneyball. And since it looks like I never made these guys a tryout, well, here they are.
