New Tracks: Crystal Stilts- Star Crawl

Brooklyn Psych- Rock quintet Crystal Stilts return with the first track to be released from their upcoming new album "Nature Noir", entitled "Star Crawl." I was a big fan of the band's brooding and atmosphere- steeped 2011 album "In Love With Oblivion", and although some of the choice Crystal Stilts trademarks reside here (reverb- laden guitars, woozy but beautiful synths and mystic vocals), the song is much lighter in tone than much of the material on their previous album. What it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in sheer, lazy pleasure, and has certainly whetted my appetite for the release of "Nature Noir."

"Nature Noir" is due out on September 17th via Sacred Bones.
