For a band that moves at Mazzy Star's glacial pace, progress must be measured in steps and inches rather than leaps and bounds. Still may be their first release in four years, but its four songs include an alternate version of the title track of their 1993 classic So Tonight That I Might See and two compositions that appear to have been kicking around since at least 2000. Nothing on the EP would sound out of place amid the dreamy desert blues of the band's 28-year-old debut album, She Hangs Brightly.
Accomplished alternative dream pop group Mazzy Star's latest EP Still picks up with the same melancholic bliss that they are so well known for. This EP marks their first big release in 22 years, it's comforting that Still sounds as nostalgic and sweet as Mazzy Star are remembered. The four song EP includes three new songs and a new version of their 1993 single 'So Tonight That I Might See.' 'Quiet, The Winter Harbor' begins with a warm, slow piano ballad that builds slowly as Hope Sandoval's velvet vocals float over the smooth progressions.
