Latest album from the Toronto combo, one that comes with agreat urban artwork, and sees some brass players as guests. I don't know if it's recent or not, but McKenzie is not part of the line-up that remains otherwise uncjanged .Just four tracks on this album and funnily enough all for are named after the four words of the band's name. Not that the music behind each word of their ensemble's name will tell you more about their philosophy, because this was set a long time ago, with their debut album.

Musically, we're still very strongly in the realm of the Constellation?GYBE! soundscapes, but DMST does make it difference: some of these tracks are quite fast, they are also very brass-y and they're not depressive (even if I wouldn't go as far as saying that these guys make frivolous and happy tunes), so those alone should indeed. The music is still very ambient, made from slow build-ups and crescendoing until they reach a climax and slowly decrease. The major difference here is the brass instruments underlining some of the more dramatic moments but bringing an upbeat to the music. Nothing new under the sun; and this album won't stand out in your post rock shelves, like a Tortoise or a Tarentel album might
