O Canada!


The Stills' Tim Fletcher insists that Canada has always had a vibrant music scene — we just didn't know where to look for it. "There's a misconception there was crap up here," says the singer and guitarist of the Montreal quintet. Maybe so, but with the emergence of the Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, et al., bands north of the border are now in the spotlight. The Stills' second pop-tastic CD, Without Feathers, reflects the newfound interest. "We existed in a narrow music world before," says Fletcher. "We wanted to make a record that expressed a few more of our influences. We wanted to make something a little more celebratory and upbeat."
