Really excited about the long-awaited arrival of Crystal Castles' second album, also self-titled Crystal Castles like their earthquake of a debut. I've been listening to it all day, I couldn't be in more or a hurry to get addicted! Look out for my review of the album on my Gay Times blog in a few days.
In the meantime you can download the album and read some more serious reviews here:
Emily Mackay in NME - "It makes you want to fight, f**k or flee, to jump on the nearest table and start ape-grimacing and throwing things, possibly your own faeces."
Killian Fox in The Guardian - "a much more satisfying record than its predecessor" (??? - typical backhanded compliment)
Brian Emerson in Second Supper - just READ it!
Oh also - Crystal Castles are on the front of the new Dazed & Confused and the song Baptism features in Tim Noakes' playlist. Check all the Dazed excitement over Crystal Castles here. Shame the Dazed cover shot is very trademark, very old school Crystal Castles.
I want to see Alice and Ethan in their swimmers at Butlins or something.
