When Sub Pop finds a band that achieves a modicum of success, it tends to sign another couple in that vein to try to replicate that formula. So it goes with Still Corners, as evidenced on their Sub Pop debut, Creatures of an Hour. You can hear clear echoes of Beach House in Tessa Murray's diaphanous vocals and Greg Hughes' murmuring organ flourishes and hushed atmospheres. You will also notice unmistakable evocations of Broadcast's more melancholically splendorous moments. That Still Corners grip me harder than Beach House speaks to the former's more robust rhythmic thrust, closer resemblance to the aforementioned Broadcast, and overall darker melodic spectrum.
