you, you're awesome
The new Do Make Say Think album, You, You're A History In Rust, will be released in February 2007, and I can't say enough good things about it. I was really turned onto these guys when I saw them open for (and nearly upstage) Broken Social Scene earlier this year. The new record features the band's signature swirling, non-linear instrumental post-rock, but they also get guest vocals from members of Akron/Family, which sounds exactly how you might expect. The label says the song A With Living "will surprise hardcore DMST followers" with its "full-on verse-chorus-verse singing that builds towards lovely massed vocals before breaking down again into a beautiful modal horn denouement." I'm not a hardcore DMST follower, but the song is amazing and alone makes the album worth purchasing. With that said, I'm going to post a different one. Here's the shortest track on the album:

The simplistic and starkly gorgeous album cover (pictured above) is an early contender for the best album art of 2007. I will unquestionably be purchasing You, You're A History In Rust on vinyl, featuring DMM mastering at Abbey Road and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl, with the LP gatefold cut from whiteboard and offset printed in full-color.
