Free Album: Deep Elm’s Postrockology (Various Artists)

Deep Elm Records may be a well known name to hardcore fans of the indie-rock and emo genres, but in the past few years they’ve also been amassing a huge amount of talented post-rock bands

Deep Elm compilations have the tendency to be some of the best in their respective genres (just look at their Emo Diaries series), and Postrockology is no exception. Even better, it’s free! So if you’re a fan of the post-rock genre, you have no business skipping this comp. It features songs by Last Lungs, Dorena, Athletics, and two choice tracks from the terrific band The Appleseed Cast.
