‘Strange Pleasures’ goes gold. Sub Pop present Still Corners’ 2013 album ‘Strange Pleasures’ reissued on gold vinyl.
The second album from Still Corners, ‘Strange Pleasures’ expanded and re-defined the band’s sound with twelve stunning classic dream-pop songs including hit ‘The Trip’, a six minute odyssey about travel and the open road. Complete with Tessa Murray’s lush vocals and Greg Hughes’ simmering clean-toned guitar, Mojo magazine called ‘Strange Pleasures’ a “lush intoxicating album” and Paste magazine “an album of great beauty.”
The album was captured in Hughes’ Greenwich studio, with the protean multi-tasker handling all the instruments and penning most of the lyrics. Where its predecessor soared on sugared layers of shoegazing-infused retro-futurism, ‘Strange Pleasures’ proffered a leaner, more acute extrapolation of 80s-suffused song and studio craft, navigating a sinuous trajectory between velveteen Angelo Badalamenti noir-pop torch song sophistication, ethereal Cocteau Twins beauty and the glacial, mellifluous territory mapped by Modern English, The Cure and The Passions.
