9/10 Mike Staff review, 02 August 2011

Here we have the latest from the hottest new things in the new-'60s scene. It's a transatlantic split between Still Corners, an English hype band, and The New Lines, an American band I've never heard of. Both offer pleasant excursions into psychedelic pop territory. I think that on first impressions I'm probably enjoying the New Lines side the best. It's got a real B-movie soundtrack feel to it, with a really sparse, thin guitar sound. It's all held together by bass, drums and hammond organ, really. If my ears aren't deceiving me there's also a short trumpet solo. It's really true to the '60s pastoral freak folk aesthetic, I think, and the vocals are quite monotonous which gives it a slight Velvet Undergroundy edge. There's some cool cascading dual guitars at the end as well. A brilliantly constructed track. Flip it (and change the speed!) and the Still Corners one is a cool, breathy little groover with Spector-influenced production and girl band harmonies. Phil wants me to point out that it was previously on their 'Remember Pepper' CD EP. I think he just wants to show off that he's known about them since way back when. It's a lovely little song, actually. Took me a couple of listens to really warm to it but it's superbly put together and there's some really sweet little momentary touches - some kind of wild synth sweeps in the chorus, and I could swear there's some little string flourishes, but maybe those are done on keys, too. Both nice songs here, anyway.
