Out Of Stock Crystal Stilts - In Love With Oblivion
It’s not so much a departure as just, well, better. For every one of Brad Hargett’s nonchalantly droning vocals, there’s a melody that shimmers and sparkles with all the pop nous of any ’60s great; Crystal Stilts, like The Cure or The Jesus And Mary Chain before them, understand that the beauty is in the balance. Lead single and highlight ‘Shake The Shackles’ epitomises this with gorgeous ease. Its opening gambit may read like an excerpt from Elliott Smith’s most tortured diary, but the fuzzy layers of infectious riffs, organs and tambourine shakes gloom clear with a hopeful, dappled-sunlight brilliance. ‘Through The Floor’ stomps along like Bowie hitting the West Coast, while ‘Half A Moon’ is all Hammond organs and acid-soaked exuberance, and ‘Death Is What We Live For’ is part Iggy, part Lou, part Brian Jonestown and all genius.
‘In Love With Oblivion’ dips its toe in cross-continental waters from Warhol’s Factory to Manchester’s, but from start to finish Crystal Stilts have produced something that’s defiantly, distinctively ruled only by itself." (Read more: www.nme.com)

About: "...Crystal Stilts’ second effort,is just as much post-garage, post-Velvets or post-Spector as they are indebted to the dark wanderings of the late ’70s. Where 2008 debut ‘Alight Of Night’ swooned in on a wave of surf-tinged guitars & a simple, rhythmic swagger, ‘ILWO’ capitalises on the band’s melodic talents & embraces them tenfold" (www.nme.com)
