Do Make Say Think You, You're A History in Rust
- Words: Josiah Hughes
- Label: Constellation
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
Do Make Say Think's fifth record sounds like a celebration-and it should. Twelve years into their career, the Ontario-based post-rock quintet is more relevant than ever, having established themselves as forerunners of DIY instrumental rock. You, You're a History in Rust marks a strident new era for the band, with songs like "A With Living" and "In Mind" breaking the mold by including vocals for the first time. Elsewhere, "The Universe!" explodes from the start, abandoning the formulaic crescendos that once defined post-rock. Complete with guest vocals from Akron/Family and warm production from guitarist Ohad Benchetrit, History is a solid listen through and through. As every new record is their best, it's clear that Do Make Say Think is doing something right.
