Do Make Say Think – Bound And Boundless

Toronto-based post-rock outfit Do Make Say Think will release Stubborn Persistent Illusions, their first album since 2009’s Other Truths, on May 19 via Constellation.

The band, which shares members with Broken Social Scene, teased the album yesterday with a short clip from a song titled Bound. Today they’ve shared Bound And Boundless, a combination of two tracks that make up the album’s centerpiece.

Eight years has been a hefty wait for the follow-up to 2009’s Other Truths, after which the five members of DMST pursued other creative projects. New writing and recording sessions throughout 2014-2016 have led to overdubbing, ‘underdubbing’, gestating and mixing, helmed by band members Ohad Benchetrit, Charles Spearin and Justin Small at Ohad’s studio th’Schvitz. Stubborn Persistent Illusions is a reminder and continuation of the group’s DIY ethos, and the integral role played by their singular self-production acumen and aesthetic.

Stubborn Persistent Illusions is out May 19 on Constellation Records. Pre-order here.

Jacques Greene – True (feat. How To Dress Well)

Jacques Greene releases his forthcoming debut LP, Feel Infinite, on March 10 via LuckyMe.

He explains: “The essence of the record is to draw emotions that above all feel human within the context of dance music. I want it to be celebratory of all that we feel and do and experience – the beautiful, the good, and the bad.”

True, his soothing collaboration with How To Dress Well, follows a string of singles taken from his forthcoming album including To Say, Real Time and Afterglow.
