After meticulous internal deliberations, the Gauntlet’s editorial board decided to award the spatula to Amanda Dickson. Amanda did not write any articles for us but continued editing Wednesday night well after our most hardened veterans abandoned ship to drink alcohol. Her eye for literary stupidity and merciless pink pen deflated many camouflaged errors in this week’s paper. Our corporate masters will be most impressed when we present her for indoctrination.

  Spun: Zachary LuckyPDF files may take a moment to load

You’ll have a pretty good idea of what you are getting into from the title of this album, but don’t underestimate it. This isn’t just another sappy harrowing of worn love ballads. While this isn’t an album to reach for when you want an upbeat, get-the-day-started groove, it is great for a quiet, introverted, moody day when you’re looking for some excellent acoustic guitar playing with pensive, longing lyrics. Fiddle and banjo round out the sound.

Mourning Trance is the second album from Toronto-based indie rock group Still Life Still, originally formed in 1999. The band has undergone many changes over the years, finally releasing their first album, Girls Come Too in 2009. Mourning Trance carries more maturity and thoughtfulness than the band’s debut album. The lyrics, whilst not provocative, have a pleasant abstract quality although they are partially drowned out by the other instruments.
