Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Do Make Say Think

Both these Canadian groups build monumental songs by layering deceptively simple guitar riffs, exquisitely-timed drums, and punchy horns. Godspeed's sprawling songs are slow to build, but cram epic drama into their climaxes. Do Make Say Think has shorter, tighter, more accessible songs. Though I don't know what to call this music, I know it's beautiful and disturbing and amazing. And cheap. Direct orders from their label, Constellation Records, get you the cds, post paid, for only $12.

Clips of Godspeed here.
