Still Corners | Strange Pleasures (Full Stream)

Sub Pop posted a full stream of Still Corners’ newest record, “Strange Pleasures”, which opens with a beautiful over six-minute long track called “The Trip”. It’s a summery, hazy blending of whirling guitar and synth. This record is the follow-up to the ethereal tones of the band 2012 LP, “Creatures Of An Hour.” But it’s easy to hear a number of clear differences from that record. “Strange Pleasures” makes use of looped musical architecture and Tessa Murray’s vocals are even more lithe, matching the cloud-comfort of songs like the exquisite “I Can’t Sleep” — which I found to be reminiscent of the lushness of a band like Reverie Sound Revue. It’s not all soft and twee though. There’s a type of strength in the double-tracked sound of Murray’s singing in “All I Know”, which makes for a great 1-2 combo with “I Can’t Sleep”. Follow Still Corners at facebook and an official website. — David D. Robbins Jr.
