Montreal's The Stills drew comparisons to Echo and Bunnymen and Joy Division with its debut album "Logic Will Break Your Heart" but retooled its sound completely for its second LP "Without Feathers." The well-received sophomore effort ditched the post-punk eyeliner schtick in favor of an earthy '70s-inspired heartland rock vibe peppered with Hammond organ, midtempo ballads and breezy harmonies. The quintet's multiple songwriters and multi-instrumentalists are united by their dedication to pristine songcraft and Bonaroo-size sound swells, making the group a favorite of both the mainstream and indie rock camps.
