Editorial Reviews

Since Constellation issued their self-released debut record in 1998, Do Make Say Think have made one critically-acclaimed album after another. In many ways the new album picks up where Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn 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, You're 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 home base 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 album's 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.

One of my favorite albums so far in this very young year.

Bottom line: if you've ever been "on the fence" with DMST, this album is a good one to hear.
Mekman79
Hell, they even flirt with song structures, introducing really effective vocals.

Impressive combination of growth and retrospect help earn DMST's latest their most compelling spin yet. It is a highly balanced album, never feeling drowned out in artistic grandeur, rarely missing an appealing transition in the band's collective array of melodic assaults, and hardly rambling on any of their thoughtfully constructed jams before producing some of post-rocks most non-generic musical celebrations. In short, their tightest album to date, as eclectic in band member's unique musical insight as it is unilaterally appealing in a non-pretentious way, quite the accomplishment for this rather pigeon-holed genre of pseudo-epic, mopey mope constructs.

It may not hold all the cathartic release of previous master-tracks, but side-by-side this album is a more musically captivating whole then anything previous, all we could have asked for is a longer album with more cuts. Unfortunately, the band may even be trying a little too hard to branch out into the uncharted territories of, gasp, vocals, bleeding through their BSC influence on the disc's only lapse from an underlying constructive integrity all other songs provide (which in the latter half, so blatantly molds an awesome guitar line after Enemy Airship's "Apartment Song" that I hope it was some sort of intended reflection, but probably isn't). Rest assured, everything else manages to keep this band completely relevant, confident that they remain in an awesome state creatively.

1st impressions track by track:

1.Powerfully tight, fluid opener capitalizing on all their upbeat strengths

2.Plodding, vocal laden track, latter half paying homage? to an earlier album's riff

3.Melodically intricate, spirited, unrelenting rock flow predicated upon the bombastic simpleton chorus

Many years ago, I took a chance and bought three albums on a little upstart label from Canada. At the time, the only band that I'd actually heard on their roster was Godspeed You Black Emperor, but that was good enough for me, and I picked up releases by Exhaust, Sofa, and a group called Do Make Say Think. The rest, as they say, is history, and after a series of steady albums that little unknown group with four verbs as their name became artists that I could simply count on to release great music time in and time out with every album.

Times change a bit, and with seemingly every member of the group participating in about 3 other projects, there was bound to be a period where their other obligations would pull them away. With several members sharing time in the successful Broken Social Scene and other members having children and generally living their lives, it's been almost four years between the release of Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn and the long-awaited You, You're A History In Rust. Like previous albums, there are places where the release doesn't sink in on first listen, and yet in most places it's like they haven't skipped a beat.

Opening track "Bound To Be That Way" is a perfect example of the group falling right back into things, as the song mixes gorgeous heavy strums of guitar with more propulsive sections that incorporate everything from banjo to buzzing bass while peaking in two delightful crescendos. "A With Living" follows, and it's a slight curveball, with vocal contributions from Akron/Family that really flesh things out in places while at the same time running a bit overlong at over nine minutes in length.

I've been listening to DMST for some time now but this I'm enjoying this new CD more than any of their others. Apart from the ridiculous song titles, this is a great mix of jazzy, catchy but not simple- or "pop"-sounding songs; and the vocal parts are actually very well integrated into the songs. Not one track that I skip. Bottom line: if you've ever been "on the fence" with DMST, this album is a good one to hear. Too many post-rock outfits are little more than Mogwai sound-a-likes (e.g. MONO), but DMST has a unique sound. And by the way, DMST is surprisingly good in concert. --- P.S. Other lesser-known post-rock outfits to sample: SAXON SHORE, MASERATI, GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT, and EL TEN ELEVEN.

When I first heard this album, I had only barely heard of DMST. I wonder why it had taken so long.

What struck me about this album was it's flow. Even though the band recorded the songs across a couple of years at several locations, the album blends cohesively and perfectly. This is one of those albums that you hit 'play' on your CD player, turn table, or iTunes and don't return until you come back to play it again.

This album is hands down my favorite post rock album ever. No one else even comes close.

Buy this record if it is the last album you ever buy.
