I quite like what I've heard of them, but haven't the foggiest where to start
i would say
It depends what you like really. As a relatively conservative "when's they quiet-loud-quiet-LOUD" fan of post-rock, I prefer the biggies like Lift Yr Skinny Fists, Slow Riot, f#a# and This is Our Punk Rock... whereas others swear by the later Silver Mt Zion stuff. I think if you want a very typical sound, IE the one everyone bangs on about, then go for one of the first three Godspeed albums. They're certainly what made me love these bands.
hard to say as they have only released a few things. Off the top of my head i would suggest everything.
start at the beginning for realistic progression of the bands. never work backwards!
also check out other related projects via Constellation.
Godspeed - start with Lift Your Skinny Fists or the Slow Riot EP. But get everything in the end, they're brilliant.
ASMZ - I'd say start at the beginning with He Has Left Us Alone..., or their second album Born Into Trouble...
trouble for triumph of our tired eyes
i would say godspeed - slow riot ep is a very good place to start.
as for ASMZ like everyone has said, dont work backwards, but if you dont like the first 2 albums it is still worth getting the 3rd as it is when they started doing things a little different
