THE STILLS (MP3 + TICKET GIVEAWAY)
Five months after the release of their second LP, Without Feathers, the Stills are touring the U.S. with their Montreal brethren Land of Talk. Personally, I found the follow-up to Logic Will Break Your Heart a disappointment -- much preferring the earlier record's slick, dark vibe (and Tim Fletcher's lead vocals). Nevertheless, "The Mountain," "Halo the Harpoons," and "Baby Blues," all made it onto mix CDs for me, so it wasn't a total loss.
Seems the band has recorded a new song with the aforementioned Land of Talk called "Monsoon." It's yours for the taking below.
Also, if anybody is interested in attending the October 13 Detroit show at the Majestic Theatre, just be the first to e-mail me @ email@example.com with "THE STILLS" in the subject line and your name and city in the body of the e-mail, and I'll have the good folks at Vice Records put you and a hot 16-year-old congressional page of your choice on the band's guest list. Hop to!
