TOR's Favourite Albums of 2008: #9
Next on my list of favorite albums for 2008 is the third album from Montreal's The Stills. After their altogether brilliant debut album Logic Will Break Your Heart, the guitarist left and the drummer started playing guitar and splitting time as vocalist; it was a, um, sh*tty move that resulted in a shockingly bad record, Without Feathers.
But with their third album, Oceans Will Rise, they seem to have gotten past the awkward transition phase and delivered a really solid rock record. It lacks the hips of Logic Will Break Your Heart, but it's a vast improvement over the musical massacre of the last album. Check out the clip of 2 songs form the new album above: "Don't Talk Down" & "Eastern Europe" live from the Mod Club in Toronto.
