In terms of music, it's used to describe bands/artists that are either mainstream, or most generic, in their specific genre/style. It's mainly used to describe underground and common unexplored genres.
Mogwai and Sigur Ros are very entry level post-rock.

A position, usually within a company, that assumes you have no previous work experience. If hired for said position, the employee starts off with minimum pay which is determined by the company, and has to work his/her ass off to prove him/herself worthy of advancement, and often to reach the same amount of money that he/she was making at a previous job. Entry level often means that you are not in the position to negotiate wages at the interview.

Potential employee: .....and I also graduated with honors and a significant amount of work experience in the field....etc etc etc"

Employer: I can offer you entry level at $6.00 an hour.

A job that an employer posts for recently graduated students. A job that one supposedly can take after graduating, despite the super-low wages. And then, at the bottom of the job description: "3 TO 5 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE REQUIRED", as if they don't see the paradox in that statement.
ENTRY-LEVEL JOB OPPORTUNITY: CALLING ALL RECENT GRADS! Pay will be $7 an hour, chance of promotion after 10 years. Requirements: 3 TO 5 YEARS OF WORK EXPERIENCE IN THIS SPECIFIC FIELD. We will not consider anyone without this experience.
