Do Make Say Think

Wednesday, October 31

“Despite having four action verbs in their name, Do Make Say Think never really seem to be in a hurry to get anywhere,” wrote a reviewer of the Toronto band’s 2002 album, & Yet & Yet. Neither was I when I first heard it in a record-store listening room that same year. It was unlike anything I was listening to at the time, and became a therapeutic contrast to a herky-jerky diet of the Rapture and ESG. The eight-piece ensemble, complete with dueling (or complementary) drummers, creates instrumental jams with the elegance of jazz musicians, gradually pulling your focus right out of your bullshit and into the ether. This is especially true when seeing DMST live. Their music might be “slow” by pop standards, but the band’s dynamism is a force by any. Apostle of Hustle open.
