The Stills - Logic Will Break Your Heart [2004]




In addition to having one of the great titles of all time, this is one of the better albums of the last few years. At least half the songs on this album are brilliant and the album is really cohesive. The Stills combine elements of fellow Canadian musicians Neil Young (in their songwriting and alt-country influence) and Wolf Parade (synthesizers and frantic pace). And there are definite similarities with another indie / alt-country group, Midlake. As a sidenote, I thought the follow-up to this album-- "Without Feathers"-- was pretty disappointing.

Get it here.

Actually, that comment was from me, mistakenly signed in on Nate's acct. But it's all the same team!

Jonny, thanks for the invitation. I'd be happy to come to the get-together on the 2nd, but I will have just gotten back to Ohio from Russia a couple of days before so I might not be able to make it out. If not, I'll certainly try to make it out to something in the future if you have it.
