The Toronto post-rock band Do Make Say Think return with their first album in eight years Stubborn Persistent Illusions. The record is a well-oiled sound of a band pushing the boundaries of a genre littered with tropes, without succumbing to any of them. Do Make Say Think enter their third decade with a new album that reaffirms their promise of genuinely expressive, narrative and restorative instrumental rock music – an one that will surely rank among their best.
Do Make Say Think has been widely celebrated as one of the preeminent instrumental rock bands of the modern era. Among the band’s strengths is an ineffable naturalism that avoids anything too woolly, proggy, purist or clichéd, while remaining a fundamentally guitar-driven group whose ornate four-string and six-string interplay uniquely balances rockism, pastoralism, and electronic-influenced post-production. Stubborn Persistent Illusions is at once familiar and as fresh as anything DMST has committed to tape; produced and mixed as always by the band itself – a continuing affirmation of the group’s DIY ethos and their singular self-production acumen and aesthetic.
