Still Corners: Berlin Lovers MP3

Last October, we received a taste of London band Still Corners‘ follow-up to their 2011 debut, Creatures of an Hour, with a new single called “Fireflies”. The song was the first to be released from the band’s forthcoming 2013 sophomore LP Strange Pleasures. We now have “Berlin Lovers”, the second taste.

Fense’s Radio Show: September 28, 2012

There were a few unexpected surprises in this week’s show; some great new bands and new tracks from longtime favorites. Parenthetical Girls, who formed about 30 minutes South of here, have a new EP and it is superb; Alameda’s sophomore LP is pretty great as well. And the brand new track by Still Corners is… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: September 28, 2012

Granted, the song is very good, but it alone fails to demonstrate the sheer power this band holds. That power is conveyed throughout Still Corners’ debut Sub Pop LP,… Continue reading Still Corners: Creatures of an Hour (Album Review)

Still Corners: Cuckoo (Video)

An airy whisper cuts the chilly late summer night. A synth plays an eerie but soothing organ-like melody. A set of beats backs it all, borderline drum box. “Cuckoo” by Still Corners, one of Sub Pop’s latest artists, is a song that screams the uncanny. Rightfully so, the video follows suit, layering colors atop the… Continue reading Still Corners: Cuckoo (Video)

Sub Pop Signs Three New Artists

I’m not much one for putting together a news item. I prefer writing features and reviews than pushing out the latest bit of news, but with a few new signings from Sub Pop, I figured I’d do a one-part introductory list, one-part news bit. Yes, in the last week or so, Sub Pop has signed… Continue reading Sub Pop Signs Three New Artists
