We’re hearing the Stills are close to releasing their third LP, which is perfect timing to capitalize on the buzz from their set at Rachael Ray’s indie rock SXSW showcase (go ahead and make fun of it, music bloggers, Rachael has five jobs so she doesn’t have time to care about your snark). That would make “Snake-Charming The Masses” the first single and the first video from the album that is yet to be named. It’s a sort of bleak and dire title, and so a bleak and dire tune (rimclicks, toms, and a pedal point march). Guess the extended shot of a burning house falls into that “bleak” category, too.
The Stills new one will be out one day via Arts & Crafts.
