I first mentioned Seattle post-rock band Joy Wants Eternity a few weeks back. Since then, I've acquired their second release, You Who Pretend To Sleep, and I quite like it. There's some standard post-rock type instrumental rocking going on here, but in addition there's some quieter, spacier tracks that really add some nice texture and keep the record from feeling like too much of a one trick pony. As in: loud rocking, quiet rocking, repeat until there's no space left on the CD.
If you like Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, and all the rest, you'll definitely like this. If I had a car and drove, this is the kind of record I'd listen to on the highway late at night.
