“Shake the Shackles”
When Brooklyn’s Crystal Stilts showed up on the scene in 2008 with their first self-titled release, Pitchfork mentioned, “The Crystal Stilts are moody-sounding f***ers who make fabulous stripped-down garage-pop.” Yup. It’s true. But moody as they are, Slumberland Records still loves them. So much, they signed the band and are releasing their next dark-toned musical creation. According to the label, ‘”Shake The Shackles” is Crystal Stilts’ first release since “Love Is A Wave” and is a great snapshot of where the band is now and a taster for their forthcoming album, due early 2011.’ Take a listen to the singles, above and get psyched for the good things to come on those stilts of crystal.
