'stills' by megan landry represents a pretty assured debut for a young canadian songwriter. the album is full of lyrically complex, off-kilter piano-driven indie/pop jammers. reminiscent of some of the real songwriterly, unique pop of the late 90's/early 2000's.
megan is not afraid to get strange with the lyrics and arrangements. the opening track 'cut to it', meant to be the single, is a stand out. but i also really enjoy the slow-burner 'reservations', with its strange harmonies and funhouse organ.
