Boomkat Product Review:
Freshly signed to that most prolific of outlets for Canadian rock music, Arts & Crafts, The Stills return with a third album, and an absolutely huge sound. 'Being Here' is like the kind of stadium-baiting, U2-style material Kings Of Leon are belting out at the moment, full of big guitar hooks and a vast production sound. Similarly, 'Snow In California' takes further steps towards the mainstream with a huge, echoing sound and Band Of Horses-style soaring vocals. When the band do their utmost to rock out, as on the verses to 'Eastern Europe' they tend to sound rather too glossy for their own good, but once they're settled into the tuneful jangle of 'Hands On Fire' they get right back on form, and 'I'm With You' offers up another great opportunity for a big stadium-indie single.
