Crystal Stilts – ‘Radiant Door’ Wednesday 02 November, 2011
Brooklyn’s Crystal Stilts are set to release their new EP ‘Radiant Door’ via Sacred Bones on November 15. The first song ‘Dark Eyes’ kicks off the double sided, five track release. ‘Radiant Door’ follows the Crystal Stilts reverb-soaked 2011 record ‘In Love With Oblivion’. The lead single ‘Shake The Shackles’ got loads of attention when Slumberland first released it back in 2010, a mix of vintage garage rock and noise pop.
Crystal Stilts have won a lot of new fans this year and ‘Radiant Door’ is the icing on the cake. Pre-orders are available from Sacred Bones Records who are hailing ‘Dark Eyes’ as one of their best. The PR states, “Radiant Door reflects the band’s experiments with specific ideas in the studio and what they’ve been excited about and listening to, including Blue Orchids, Sanford Clark, and many more. Opening track ‘Dark Eyes’ may be their strongest song to date, unshackling them from their fuzzy reputation, which, even at its heaviest, could never obscure one from this bands dexterous song-craft.”
