New Stuff From Still Corners (Dream Pop FTW)


Photo by Bernard Bur

Hi all,

One of my favorite contemporary dream pop bands is putting out new music, which I'm pumped about. Still Corners, if you've never listened to them, is like entering another world - one presided by the likes of David Lynch and such. I've only been listening to them for a few years, but I'm very smitten.

"The Last Exit" is due on in January 2021, and here's a glimpse at what that album is going to sound like via the title track.


Themes of isolation (bcs of COVID, thanks COVID) and the need for intimacy make their way into the album. And there's no better place to express isolation than the desert, is there? Says Greg Hughes of the two-piece band, "We found something out there in the desert – something in the vast landscapes that went on forever."

The video for "The Last Exit" is inspired by "Picnic at Hanging Rock." Said singer Tessa Murray of this creative choice, "In a world where everyone thinks all the corners of the map are filled in we like to suggest there's something beyond that, something eternal in the landscape and in our psyche. Maybe you don't see it every day but it's there and that's what we are trying to connect to."

Below is the track list for the upcoming album - the culminating final chapter in their "Road" trilogy - that will be out early next year. (You can preorder here.) 

1. The Last Exit
2. Crying
3. White Sands
4. Till We Meet Again
5. A Kiss Before Dying (BK note: Sounds like my jam) 
6. Bad Town
7. Mystery Road
8. Static
9. It's Voodoo
10. Shifting Dunes
11. Old Arcade

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
