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. ‘You, You’re 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’ left off - acoustic finger picked guitars are the recurring compositional anchor, with drums and percussion fluttering around these campfire themes while horns and electric guitars gather in swarms.
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.
Band member Justin Small plays in Lullabye Arkestra and Charles Spearin plays in Broken Social Scene.
Do Make Say Think’s music has been featured in the films, ‘The Corporation’ (2003) and ‘Syriana’ (2005).
The CD is available in a delux 6-panel cardstock jacket and the LP is pressed on 180g virgin vinyl.
