Five Slowcore Bands That Weren't Really Slowcore

Last year, we detailed five fantastic post-rock bands that scoff at the term post-rock and, more or less, pissed on the very thought of being tagged as such.

With Luna's Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips conquering the grassy hill at the Belmont Hotel tonight as a part of KXT 91.7's Barefoot at the Belmont Series, for what's being billed as a "Dean Sings Galaxie 500" show, we thought it'd be fun to take a look at five splendid slowcore bands from the past and present that would rather us just leave them alone with all of the slow-talk.
