Yeah, I like, did a double take when I saw that some of hte titles of the new album are like two words long.
Goddamn, why does the shortest track on Every Heart... have the longest title?
Because Red Sparowes.
Fucking Red Sparowes and their lengthy, stereotypically post-rock titles. :/
I've only heard their most recent album, and wasn't impressed.
Their first two didn't seem as "stereotypically post-rock" depending on how you define that.
And Zudak said their newest album isn't their best. I haven't heard it, so I can't say for sure, but I'm willing to trust him on this.

Yeah, dude, listen to Every Red Heart.
Black Moth Super Rainbow
cool story bro. Black Moth Super Rainbow are a psychedelic electronic pop group whose unique sound is derived from a combination of analogue synths and the extensive use of vocorders. Seriously, these guys have all the vocorders. The songs are typically short, the melodies simple and catchy. The band are known for being rather secretive, they rarely do interviews and their real names are not known.
I actually discovered these guys while inspecting the catalogue of anticon, an independent record label which primarily releases underground hip-hop. BMSR's frontman, Tobacco, has released a few solo albums on anticon. I actually still haven't listened to any of the members' side projects, oddly enough. At first listen, BMSR actually reminded me a bit of Boards of Canada, but analogue synths are really the only thing they have in common. But enough talk! Have a listen to some of their music:

They may now impregnate me. They're kind of like Giraffes?Giraffes! but...not, and without the pretentiously long (though somewhat awesome) names for their song titles.
Hmm, well, Giraffes are a pretty good band, and I haven't updated this in a while so... Sure, Why Not?.
Giraffes? Giraffes! -- More Skin With Milk-Mouth
Some of you may have already heard it, because it was one of my earlier recommendations in the Album Exchange Club.
I Am S/H(im)e[r] As You Am S/H(im)e[r] As You Are Me And We Am I And I Are All Our Together: Our Collective Consciousness’ Psychogenic Fugue
It's awesome, though.
I WARNED YOU ABOUT LONG TITLES
I TOLD YOU DOG
Eh? Whuzzat? Music. Fine, take this and get off mah lawn, ya damn kids! It's probably too good for you to appreciate, but whatever. You young folk these days got no respect.

There is Japanese post-rock in this thread and nobody has mentioned Mouse On The Keys.
I demand to know why, and present the case for.
'cause I'd never heard of them before, that's why, you goddamn hipster. >:| :D
Well now you know them, which is good seeing as they're the best of the bunch. They're touring here in March. I am insanely excited. :3
Their drummer is a monster too.
Hmm. Listen to Nisennenmondai and About Tess.
That goes for all of you.

this guy composed the soundtrack for Minecraft.
If you like electronic music it's well worth investigating his catalog. And did I mention it's free?
hey look at this
Meta Four clued me in to these guys. They're good, and the music's free, so give it a listen. It's jazzy, electronica-tinged post-rock in the vein of Do Make Say Think or Tortoise.
"Seek Better Counsel" is my favorite song from either release.
Do you love bone-chillingly dark ambient music? Do you have a few hours to spare? How about one dollar?
If so have I got a deal for you: Field Recordings from the Edge of Hell!
I'm not quite sure if I'd qualify that as hipster music.
Unless the hipster was also a lich or something.
Dude, I only did a foul necromantic ritual to turn myself into an undead power from beyond the grave ironically.
