Still Corners

After the London-based haze rock band Still Corners released a buzzworthy single called “Endless Summer” late last year, Sub Pop rushed in for a deal, and just a few weeks ago the label released Creatures of an Hour. Creatures is Still Corners’ first proper record since founder Greg Hughes added some members to his band, most notably the cherubic blonde vocalist Tessa Hadley. Hughes has said that his songwriting is influenced by the landscape of the English countryside and European art films, which accounts for the calm atmospheric beauty and romance of Still Corners’ music. Hadley’s voice turns the melodies in sheer, floating wisps, backed by distant guitar and organ sounds and sparse drumbeats that sound like echoes in a cave—it’s equal parts lovely and creepy. With Ganglians, Witch Gardens. ERIN K. THOMPSON
