Blossoms, Miami/Dice, Still Corners

When: Mon., Oct. 17 2011

STILL CORNERS This trio of Londoners (now signed to Sub Pop) meld a bunch of appealing elements together on Creatures of an Hour, their superb new disc of gorgeous — and pleasantly disorienting — dream pop. There’s some Beach House here for you current kids, but that’s just a rabbit hole to more focused and sophisticated melodies, some of which even recall trad Brit folk. At other times, it’s “Just Like Honey”-era Jesus & Mary Chain run through Slowdive, or Yo La Tengo fronted by Julee Cruise, or the Ronettes and Cocteau Twins joining forces, or ... anyhow — like I said: beaucoup tasty elements, awesome record.
