Can you help me find more music that sounds like this music?

Boy howdy do I like this song, "Unfeeling Feeling" by Braindead. This is a band that not only 1) no longer exists but 2) didn't really make anything else I can find that sounds like this anyway. But! I can recall hearing stuff like this, you know, *around*, I just couldn't tell you where! If anyone is willing to help me figure out what I've been missing, please please please let me know. Thanks!

How about these tracks by Ecovillage, Forest Swords, or Legendary Hearts?

(It'd be helpful if you could say a bit more about what it is about the reference track that you like and are looking for)

They are still around: Braindead/"branedead", from the Fork and Spoon records Bandcamp page.

What specifically do you like about it? I'd probably short-hand it as pastoral post-rock, but I don't know how much you're turned off by fuzz (if you like it, you can start with bands like Flying Saucer Attack) and how much you like the chill, slack guitar — Sigur Ros might be up your alley or Windy and Carl. Searches for "ambient pop" will turn up more in that vein.

Explosions in the Sky, as mentioned above, is exactly like this but a little more deftly executed (in my humble opinion) and yeah they have some fuzzy loud parts. Unwed Sailor is also really close I think, but some of their stuff (less than half?) has vocals.

Or there's Do Make Say Think (a little more ponderous) or Don Caballero (a little rowdier).

Maybe Scenic or Roy Montgomery

In some ways sounds like Low. My favorite Low song right now is Starfire. But the early album Long Division is very beautiful and purer. I think Low may have been the originators of the sort of minimalist slow backbeat that's in the Braindead song.

So, nugaze. Also in that vein: Paik, Bethany Curve, Jetman Jet Team, Roku Music, Slowdive, Slowness, Destroyalldreamers.
