When did the term "post-rock" come into existence, and what were its requirements?
A new definition of post-rock for the 21st year, dating back to Battles' new album.

The musical term "post-rock" first appeared in 1994 in the UK music magazine "Mojo" by journalist Simon Reynolds. However, due to various theories, the context has changed in various ways up to the present day.
If it were to be likened to the music of Tortoise, which is regarded as the representative of that, and define it as music that "compromises multiple musical elements" by "technology" and "presents a counterpoint to existing rock values". , and behind it, there must be a glimpse of the magnetic field of the 90's, such as the rise of sampling culture and the segmentation of music that followed, as well as the development of recording technology.

In tune with the 90's revival wave, "post-rock" is now hot again.
The possibility of the “three requirements for post-rock” hidden there.
Consider its currentness and history from the new work of Battles, who presented alternative music as post-post rock in the 2000s!
In addition to post-rock, another big trend in 90's music, ``Onkyo-ha'', is also taken up, and the new ``Betsu-Ere'' will reveal the present from the adhesion between the two.

The theme is definition and history.
