Do Make Say Think - Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn (2003)

Everyone knows that Canada's chief exports are hockey, mainstream actors, maple syrup, and funny names for ham. What you probably don't know is that their BEST export is instrumental music. While more upbeat than the likes of post-rock greats Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Do Make Say Think's fourth studio effort "Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn" packs all of the emotion into their melodies. Jazzy drums and bass guitar prominence carry this record into our ears and continues on down into our hearts.

P.S. After my first time listening, I had the album's opening track "Fredericia" stuck in my head for weeks.

P.P.S. That's not a bad thing.

For fans of: Explosions in the Sky, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Johnnytwentythree
