Do Make Say Think: Classic Noodlanding

As many of you may know, I am obsessed with Do Make Say Think. They have become my favorite post-rock band with their awe-inspiring music. I listen to them when I work, write, and read and still want to hear more.

“Classic Noodlanding” is one of my favorite songs from the band. The guitars on this song are amazing, as the riffs completely sink into you and have you reeling from its mesmerizing spell. Check it out.

Do Make Say Think: Horripilation

Do Make Say Think has become one of my favorite post-rock bands with their versatile sound. This band seems to create some of the most reflective music that I have heard come out of the genre. It is music for decompressing and thinking about the meaning of life. On their new album Stubborn Persistent Illusions the band further pushes the boundaries of their pensive sound. “Horripilation” is one of my favorite tracks from the record with its fantastic guitar riffs. Check it out.

Do Make Say Think: Soul and Onward

Recently, I have been listening to Do Make Say Think as I type up my novel. Their music is so relaxing and puts you into a focused headspace. “Soul and Onward” is the track that I keep returning to over and over again. The guitars sound so amazing on this song with their mesmerizing riffs.
