Do Make Say Think - Goodbye Enemy Airship The Landlord is Dead

Do Make Say Think is a breath of fresh air when it comes to post rock. Forsaking the EITS 'crescendo-chord-crescendo' formula of operation, they ply in favor of a jazz-influenced sound laden with rich effects and sweeping horns. The saxophone and flute parts are beautiful and the simplistic guitar is meditative and blunderingly brilliant in all of its rawness. Most of the album was recorded in a barn in Canada and if you turn your speakers up you can literally hear the barn doors creak, the crickets chirp, fall of feet on dirt and the mumbling of voices. This record has more than enough atmosphere to supply dozens of planets. This is the perfect album to pick you up out of a bad mood or calm frayed nerves. I recently purchased this album used after listening to it on and off for the past 4 years and still to this day it stands as a massive influence to the way I play and write music. Please purchase this if you can, Constellation Records is an honest label that does nothing short of amazing things.

Because this album should be experienced in all its glory I'm upping a 320kbps rip which will need to be downloaded in 2 parts. Trust me, it'll be well worth it.
