Full Stream of the New Crystal Stilts Record

cs

The new Crystal Stilts LP, In Love With Oblivion, came out this week but over at the Hype Machine you can get a free stream of the entire album to try before you buy! Throw these guys in with the likes of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, The Fresh and Onlys, and fuck it, The Doors too — spooky, atmospheric pop songs wrapped in fuzz and reverb.  On first listen, this is their most effective work yet.

The album, described as a beguiling mix of pop music and experimental garage rock, was recorded mostly in Southern Florida. Shortly after the album hits stores, the band will hit the road. A full list of dates can be found below, as can the band’s energetic first single “Through The Floor.”
