Fin de Siecle – Remarkable Post-Rock & Post-Indie Music at the End of the Century


Inspired by the releases lately by yo la tengo and godspeed you! black emperor and the amazing live gig by do make say think in leipzig at the constellation festival, this a mix to remember the days at the end of the century 1999 – 200o, maybe the first month of 2001 as well: the end of indie rock as we know it, the days of postrock and great constellation records releases. Electronic milestones like radiohead´s Kid A. It´s the starts of phil elverum´s microphones and there are neutral milk hotels´ cornerstone aeroplane over the sea, mogwai´s come on, die young! or the magnetic fields epic 69 love songs.

Post rock is not dead – indie rock is not dead but they might smell a bit weird there days. Here is a memory of some non forgotton tracks. I had to skip  tracks like from saul williams´ hip hop spoken word masterpiece amethyst rock star or noir desire´s lp des visages des figures, cause  these tracks would be although important these days, be difficult to integrate into the flow of the mix.

So this is a fin de siecle mix or : let´party like it´s 1999 (prince)
