Do Make Say Think – “Do” (Stereogum Premiere)

The ever-expanding and contracting Toronto quintet Do Make Say Think’s sixth full-length Other Truths is made up of four long tracks, “Do,” “Make,” “Say,” and “Think.” (It’s like taking “self-titled” to the molecular level.) Three go beyond the 10-minute mark — which is where you’ll find opener “Do.” It’s guest vocals are provided by the Lullabye Arkestra. (Elsewhere, Akron/Family lend their pipes to the album.) The piece goes through a number of dynamic ups and downs and passages horned, stringed, synthesized, and otherwise, but a blow-by-blow would diminish its overall power and arc, so just sit down and dig into it.

Other Truths is out 10/20 via Constellation. They’re trekking all over the place:
