Published Sep 30, 2013Despite the occasional spurt of touring, it's been years since we had a new Do Make Say Think release to spin on our turntables. While the band have yet to announce a follow-up to their 2009 set Other Truths, the long-running Toronto post-rock crew are about to give their back catalogue a boost via the first-ever vinyl pressing of their self-titled debut.
A press release from label home Constellation Records confirms that the album is being given the deluxe reissue treatment on October 15. The once CD-only set will be spread out over two LPs, with the four sides clocking in at around 72 minutes of music. The vinyl will be served up on 180-gram wax, and the original artwork has been adapted into a package featuring "a custom window-cut jacket, two heavyweight sleeves and a 12″ x 12″ credit insert." You can see the packaging up above.
Do Make Say Think initially pressed the eight-song release themselves in 1997, but Constellation reissued the set in 1999.
Constellation's original press sheet for Do Make Say Think highlighted the band's "spacerock-cum-swing approach to sweeping instrumentals," further noting that the recording was spiked with "rhythm syncopation, reverb-soaked guitar, the occasional horn, and some of the finest saturated synth tones we've ever heard."
