Kyle Carpenter Do Make Say Think are everything. The fact that this album was out for two months before I knew about it is cause for lament. Having another album by these luminaries makes the sun shine a bit more brightly. I'm already nostalgic for this album and I've only listened to it three times. A must listen. Favorite track: Return, Return Again.

Stéphane Gallay Bref, cet album est excellent: il combine la capacité du post-rock à produite de très belles ambiances et atmosphères musicales avec une réelle inventivité, notamment sur « And Boundless ». Le son, très « rond », très riche et très organique, est également une excellent surprise.

about

Do Make Say Think has been widely celebrated as one of the preeminent instrumental rock bands of the 90s-00s. Stubborn Persistent Illusions is the group’s first album in eight years – and a brilliant addition to one of the most consistently inventive and critically praised discographies in the ‘post-rock’ canon. The band has been acclaimed as “the supernova in Constellation’s stellar network…arguably the finest back catalogue of any currently operating instrumental rock band” (Drowned In Sound), creating “some of the most honest, unpretentious, group-oriented rock of their time” (Popmatters). 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- 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. 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.
