Post Electric Blues is the sixth full-length studio album by Scottish indie rock band Idlewild, self-released to around 3000 fans in June 2009. The album was released traditionally on October 5, 2009 on Cooking Vinyl. Prior to recording, guitarist Rod Jones revealed that the album has "quite an upbeat musical feel," and that it sounds "like a band having a good time."

Upon the album's traditional release, Jones stated:

The album's first single, "Readers & Writers" was released digitally on September 28th.

The album was performed in full on May 19, 2009 at Dingwalls, in Londonmarker.


A note was included with the pre-order album package thanking fans for their patience and asking them not to upload the album on to the internet. However, this has been completely ignored and it has been freely available on the internet since mid-June 2009. The album was released on Cooking Vinyl records on October 5th 2009.
