Wednesday Spotlight: The Stills

Posted by - 12:32 PM on 02/01/12
I have been lucky enough to not be affected by band hiatuses, as my favourite bands have always managed to stay together. That all changed on April 15, 2011 when The Stills made an announcement. I expected it to be for a new album. I was sadly mistaken, however, as the band announced their break-up. The news was devastating, to say the least, and I quickly found myself throwing on Logic Will Break Your Heart, to find some comfort, to be taken back to that place where the stars glow...

Their break-up will never get any easier to accept, but I find comfort in the fact that they have left behind such an amazing discography. I consider Logic Will Break Your Heart to be the band's masterpiece, and an album that I would easily call one of the best indie-rock albums of the early 2000s; it’s a hidden gem of sorts that many people have yet to hear. The album is incredibly catchy, but dark in its description of a love gone wrong -- one made even more crushing by Tim Fletcher’s sincere and haunting delivery. The beautiful and downbeat songs really make the perfect album for this time of the year. So if you never became acquainted with the band when they were around, please take a moment to listen now. You won't regret it.

How would you rank them?

For me: Logic Will Break Your Heart > Oceans Will Rise > Without Feathers

I was so happy to hear Tim singing more in Oceans Will Rise. I adore his voice.

Logic Will Break Your Heart is one of the albums that got me into Indie Rock (along with Stars' and Kings of Convenience's), and I still love that album very much. "Fevered" is such a lovely track. Oceans Will Rise is a good album too.

Ahhh. Why?!?!

Yes, yes yes. I feel the same way. Logic influenced my tastes so much when I was 16.

God, I was so excited to get a new album from them when Arts & Crafts signed them 2-3 years ago. Bahhh.
