Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The third full-length album from Do Make Say Think, & Yet & Yet finds this Toronto-based orchestral sextet delving deeper and deeper into the fabric of space-rock, jazz fusion and drone dynamics. Anyone familiar with the intricacies of Tortoise's Millions Living Will Never Die will surely find much to love here. "Classic Noodlanding" shares something of that fine record's ornate-yet-melancholy tone, thrumming bass melding with hypnotic passages of studiously-plucked guitar. Meanwhile, the portentously-titled "The End Of Music" ropes warm analogue synths and celestial drones into its triumphant design and the stark "Chinatown" adds a minimal techno dimension to its evocative, effects-laded feedback waver.

Sure, there's nothing quite as dramatic here as the incendiary crescendos peddled by Do Make Say Think's Constellation label-mates, Godspeed You Black Emperor! Rather, it seems & Yet & Yet is the work of a group devoted to mapping out the quieter reaches of the experimental spectrum. Do Make Say Think will remain peripheral members of the avant-garde hierarchy for this reason alone, but any post-rock fans desperate for a new fix should find & Yet & Yet a pleasingly tranquil leap forward. --Louis Pattison

If there was a musical aquivilent to sitting in a big field of grass with the sun beaming on your face as you slowing watch the beautiful day drawing to a close, then & yet & yet is just that.
Hailing from Toronto, Do Make Say Think blend space-rock with indie, tortoise style post-rock and a tanker filled with charm and beauty. Truely this is an album to die for.
From the first sumptuous melody of 'Classic Noodlanding' to the tear-jerking acoustic guitar loop of 'Anything for tomorrow', Do Make Say Think apply their art with laser guided precision, and a distinctly human warmth. Recorded in a barn, the lo-fi element gives the album a feeling that it is being played straight to you, and the effects used seem as natural as any guitar, rather than being caustic and out of place like on so many lesser albums.
So, in conclusion, i'd heartly reccomend this masterpiece to anyone with a ability to hear.

Simply, this is a powerful album. I don't usually write reviews for Amazon, but I love this album so much that I wanted to let other people who are interested in the band or this kind of music know that it is incredible.
I think you'd have to already be into this kind of music (post-rock, instrumental stuff), but this is one of the best albums I've got in ages. Had it for 3 months now, and it still gets heavy rotation.
I used to think of DMST as a kind of Godspeed follower, but they're not at all... They've certainly distinguished themselves by now. The tracks are emotional without being heavy, and the production effects are frequent but used very well.
If you are curious for a new kind of rock sound, I'd recommend it. If you're already familiar with the style, then don't hesitate to get it (especially if you have any of their previous albums; this is my favorite so far). Call it what you want to, art-rock, post-rock, instrumental rock; it's beautiful.
Enjoy!

Do Make Say Think are, I believe, the only band who can possibly build a song up so much you think 'if something doesn't give soon, my head will explode'.
Which is a good thing. There's a point in most songs where everything's reached an apex, and has to explode or destroy itself. And DMST always bring it over the top and take it down to perfection - it's really quite incredible to listen to.
This is good music to write to - odd. It's nigh on impossible to just sit there and listen to it by itself - but they rule.

After a few listens I like this even more than Goodbye Enemy Airship, songs flow from one to another, with the same instrumental layering that characterise all the Constellation records stuff (eg Godspeed, Silver Mt. Zion), but tempers the brooding doomsday of Godspeed with a more upbeat tone. Hell, there's even a hint of jazz in all there.Essential.
