    Right now.

    Specifically Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Explosions in the Sky.

    Anyone have more suggestions? I think I like GYBE more, simply because every damned song they make sounds like the world is ending...

    Hey narlus, ever heard of "Emery Reel" ?

    A good friend of mine's brother is in that band, they're fairly big down this way.

    The Album Leaf and Mogwai are right along the lines of Explosions in the Sky. Those three are my favorites.

    Four Tet is a band that falls into that category, but definitely has a different sound. I like some of their stuff, a bit of it is too experimental for me.

    M83 has a heavy synth with some pop vocals.

    I'd also suggest Lali Puna, Low, and these guys:

    Listen to Ratatat

    I don't think it's the same, but it's all instrumental.

    if you want a more lysergic take on things, dig into Bardo Pond (or their many side projects, esp the excellent Alasehir).
