DO MAKE SAY THINK




You, You're A
History In Rust




Code: CST045
Band: DO MAKE SAY THINK
Title: You, Youíre A History In Rust
Formats: 180gLP / CD
Release Date: 12 February 2007 (Europe), 26 February 2007 (rest of world)
Duration: 48:25



Since Constellation issued their self-released debut record in 1998, Do Make Say Think have made one critically-acclaimed album after another. They are one of the most consistently inventive instrumental rock bands of the past decade, and one of the most self-realised: DMST members themselves have recorded, mixed and mastered all the bandís work, developing a highly original and finely detailed approach to audio production. You, Youíre A History In Rust is the fifth record by Do Make Say Think and a brilliant extension of the band's unique sonic narrative.

In many ways the new album picks up where Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn (cst025, 2003) left off - acoustic fingerpicked guitars are the recurring compositional anchor, with drums and percussion fluttering around these campfire themes while horns and electric guitars gather in swarms. The songs on You, Youíre A History In Rust develop like moths drawn to a flame, instruments tracing erratic circles around a flickering, elusive centre. This organic non-linearity will be familiar to fans of the band, as DMST has been honing this kind of overlapping, multi-thematic ebb and flow over the last couple of records. And as these fans know, DMST's approach to musical deconstruction is never academic, forced, or played merely for effect; it is always a matter of weaving the captured elements together with the mixing desk played like a master instrument. As with previous releases, DMST set up in remote locations for the main recording sessions, tracking these new songs at a cottage and barn in rural Ontario, Canada and returning to their Toronto homebase at th'Schvitz studio for overdubs and mixing by production wizards Charles, Ohad and Justin.

Album opener "Bound To Be That Way" puts all these elements on fine display: recorded rhythmic and melodic figures fade in and out along with found and recovered sounds, lead instruments slide and shift in the mix, and the band's dual drummers deploy separate channels of syncopated stutter. "A With Living" will surprise hardcore DMST followers, as it features full-on verse-chorus-verse singing that builds towards lovely massed vocals before breaking down again into a beautiful modal horn denouement. "The Universe!" and "Herstory Of Glory" serve as tight, snappy firecrackers set off within the rest of the albumís pensive, dusky atmosphere. Constellation is thrilled to release this fifth album by one of our most creative, thoughtful, challenging and accessible groups. The CD is available in a 6-panel cardstock jacket and the LP features DMM mastering at Abbey Road and is pressed on 180g virgin vinyl. Thanks for listening.

Big smile

Can't wait!

Do Make Say Think might just be my favorite post rock band.

I can't wait either. So far 2007 is shaping up to be a great year for prog.

If GY!BE didn't exist (oh the horror!Cry) Do Make Say Think would've been my favorite post-rock band as well.
