A song is a chance overlapping of countless variables in an artist's life. Anatomy of a Song is a place where those variables can be dissected and examined. In this edition, Greg Hughes of Still Corners discusses "The Message." The American/British dream pop duo also features Tessa Murray and the song can be found on the band's latest albumSlow Air, which was released a couple of weeks ago via their own label, Wrecking Light.  More

Aug 17, 2018

We took a break from Songs of the Week last week due to a little vacation by our publishers. So this week we are compiling the best songs of the last two weeks. Hence we couldn't contain the list to our usual Top 10, although we didn't do too badly, only expanding to a Top 11 and a few more honorable mentions than usual.  More

Plus Metric, Joey Dosik, Underworld & Iggy Pop, Still Corners, and a Wrap-up of the Week's Other Notable New Tracks

Jul 27, 2018

There was a trend this week for artists to share two songs at once, rather than just one. We saw it with Blood Orange, Trevor Powers, Elvis Costello, Jungle, Cornershop, and Fucked Up (and Pussy Riot released three songs this week). In cases where the artist made our main best songs list we tried to pick just one song, although that proved challenging with our #1. More

Jul 13, 2018

Hello again. We haven't done a Songs of the Week for almost five weeks, since June 9. We were on vacation from mid to late June and then when we returned there really weren't enough compelling songs last week to justify doing Songs of the Week lists, mainly because of the July 4th holiday being smack dab in the middle of the week and so labels mainly avoided sharing new songs.

Still Corners, the duo of Greg Hughes and vocalist Tessa Murray, have been honing their craft since they dropped their debut album Creatures of An Hour in 2011. Three albums later this sound has evolved into a marvelous mix of sublime dreaminess and smart atmospheric pop-rock. More

"Endless Summer," the track that gave many music listeners their first taste of the U.K.'s Still Corners when it hit the web last year, exhibits a striking contradiction with its title. While the name evokes images of bright, cloudless skies, and hot sand underfoot, the music itself crackles with the chill of a cool autumn breeze. More

SXSW Recap Day 3: Toro Y Moi, Revolver, Still Corners

Mar 21, 2011

As fellow writer Mike Hilleary pointed out, the ratio of sleep to bands at SXSW is somewhat skewed. This is of course, an understatement, as it seems even my dreams (whenever I close my eyes long enough to have them) have been rented out for showcases. While there’s no accounting for my subconscious booking agency (who seem intent on making it an all Twin Shadow bill), the variety of bands available to the waking world of SXSW is pretty dang impressive. After our second successful Under the Radar day party, the magazine crew opted to hop from venue to venue for the remainder of the evening, as no one showcase was strong enough to demand our full attention.
