The production is so perfectly soft at the edges that it might sometimes feel as if these songs are bleeding out of the tired old speakers of a rest stop jukebox in a nowhere town, the old barstool crew looking into their black coffee and thinking of nothing in particular.

If this was the 1990s, and things like charts, music videos, radio play and the music press still mattered, The Last Exit would be everywhere.

Uncut

The Last Exit feels like the end of a journey for Still Corners; one on which the London duo have leaned into the wider, more psychedelic element of their sound and let Tessa Murray’s heady voice shine.

Mojo

Murray's voice is a beautiful, dreamy magnet for Hughes's backdrops, which without losing their twang take all sorts of tangents.

American Songwriter

Still Corners stitches a seamless amalgamation of lyrics, vocals, production and song composition, all of which makes The Last Exit an early contender for one of 2021’s finest, and most enduring releases—one to listen to, absorb and bask in.

GOOD

Somehow both mellow and vibrant. Eased me into the start of my day with the simple, yet totally effective, dreamy vocals and instrumentals. Kind of reminds me of Beach House at times!

Favourite tracks: White sands, mystery road, shifting dunes

the final record of the trilogy, and I think this is the best Still Corners album to date. I always admire their stuff but it never quite gets over the hump for me. that's not true with this one. this chapter of the project really hangs together. the individual songs flow together well without losing their identity. having heard a couple of singles previously, I could sense exactly where they would slot into the progression.

I enjoyed it but probably won't come back to it at any point.
Pretty much sums up every other January 2021 album.
