Daily Download: "In the Beginning," The Stills

Their second album, "Without Feathers," finds Montreal's the Stills dropping the dark, brooding and oh-so-trendy sound of their debut, and somewhat unexpectedly turning to major-key riffs and '70s rock stylings. The band's former drummer, Dave Hamelin, takes vocal duties on this song, and while his voice doesn't really have the power to push it into something special, there are still some great production touches, particularly the dissonant flurries that occasionally threaten to overwhelm the song.
