Windsor for the Derby are an American post-rock band based in Austin, Texas, whose members are originally from Tampa, Florida.
Their debut album was released in 1996 on Trance Syndicate, and was produced by Adam Wiltzie, who then joined the group after the release of the album. In 1999 they released a full length record, ''Difference and Repetition'' on Michael Gira's Young God Records, including a 7-inch single on Western Vinyl. A collection of B-sides entitled ''Earnest Powers'' followed in 2002, after some lineup changes. Bandmembers McNeely and Matz then moved to Philadelphia, eventually signing to Secretly Canadian, where they have released their last several albums.
Their 2004 song, "The Melody of a Fallen Tree," appeared in Sofia Coppola's 2006 movie ''Marie Antoinette''.
