Boomkat Product Review:
Yet another album from Constellation recording veterans Do Make Say Think is hardly the sort of thing to get the modern music world sitting up and taking note is it? The band have been releasing records for nigh on ten years now, and post rock, despite having something of a renaissance last year, is still desperately unfashionable. Imagine my surprise then on hearing this record and realising that it's likely to be one of the best of the year. The first time I listened to this album (on a train, incidentally) the first thing I did when it finished was play it through again, and again. Very rare when you're in a confined place, but this is the sort of record that can put a large grin on your face no matter where you happen to be - it's got big loud bits, nods to classic pop music, noise, jazzy eccentric drum parts, horns - hell there's even vocals. Yup it's a post rock album with vocals, and if you're thinking this is all starting to get a bit Akron/Family, you'd be right - the Fam make a surprise (and very welcome) guest appearance on the album doing, you guessed it, vocals. I guess this shows the little post rock genre growing up a bit, and DMST are braving forward with maturity, grace and a keenly realised sense of humour. Just listen to the band's opening gambit 'Bound to be that Way' a track that, I must say, if you don't fall in love with by the time it's finished - you clearly haven't got a heart. One part Tortoise, one part Dolly Parton, it really is the perfect ascent of a flagging sound, and when those horns hit mid-way through you'll know you're on the way to somewhere truly special. Any more albums this good (and I have a feeling there might be...) and we'll be in for a cracking 2007! Huge recommendation.
