Crystal Stilts

Crystal Stilts are welcoming their new LP In Love with Oblivion on 4/12 via Slumberland (it comes out in the UK one day earlier), and the band played their last local show until that release at 285 Kent Ave on Feb 18th with Beach Fossils, Widowspeak, and La Femme. Pictures from that gig are in this post.

The next time Crystal Stilts play in the neighborhood is to support Spectrum who is going on tour in April (all dates below). Crystal Stilts aren't on the whole tour, but they do open both NYC shows - the previously mentioned one at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 4/17 (tickets), and the show one day earlier at Le Poisson Rouge on 4/16 (tickets)

All Spectrum & CS tour dates, Crystal Stilts' new cover art, and more pictures from 285 Kent, below...

OOOMMMGGG has anyone seen the banner for the new Toro and Moi album? Thats the ugliest vagina I've ever seen. How did that get past the FCC?

My buddy has an in that got me a listen to this new Crystal Stilts album. It's pretty great, especially compared to the last album. A lot more noise, less psych-rock, more melody. At one point while I was listening, I tugged down my briefs and worked up a good hard one with my hipster cock and used a vinyl sleeve as a cum rag (It was a Blessure Grave EP lol.) No one has said a lot about this album thus far but I think it has the potential to be one of the year's best.

Yah it's the cover of the new album and it looks like a pussy with teeth.

I saw Crystal Stilts play one good song. Then they played it again over and over and it wasn't so good.

Why does every indie band from the last 2 years have beach or crystal in their name. Or black or bells.
