Bob Marley, "Keep On Moving"

This comes from the second collection of Bob Marley's singles collection, The Complete Bob Marley & The Wailers. The second collection is called Soul Revolution, and I think I generally prefer the previous volume on the whole. Of course, it's all great, and it's a shame these collections aren't still in print, they're excellent.

Explosions In The Sky, "The Birth And Death Of The Day"

I have to say, while I think that Godspeed You! Black Emperor is probably the platonic ideal of post-rock bands, this band/track name combo here is really incredible form. If you give these names to an informed music listener, they're going to guess post-rock pretty much every time. It sounds exactly like you'd expect.

Soldat Hans, "Schoner zerbirst, Part II"

Geez, you thought that last track was long! This band self-describes as "folk doom", and when you're this...deliberate with your pace, I think maybe you're just post-rock. Well, that's OK around here, anyway.

Portal, "Swarth"

Avant-garde metal band out of Brisbane, Australia, Portal's biographies are as mysterious as their music. It's all murky and puzzling, but I like that it's pretty unexpected. There's a vibe to this stuff that is unmistakably subterranean. This is the title track of their 2009 album.

Mad Caddies, "S.O.S."

Yes, the ABBA song. This is why people hated the third wave, Mad Caddies!
