"Crystal Stilts make terrific use of their recycled material, appropriating favorite forebears' brooding moves (and their richly endowed signifiers), and contributing their own deft hooks and stealth energy." Pitchfork
"Quite simply, Alight Of Night is one of the most breathtaking records these ears have been partial to in a long while, and even if Crystal Stilts never make another record, their legacy is assured." Drowned In Sound
We know a LOT of you can't wait for this one, but well worth the wait its been - this album is AMAZING!
On April 15, 2011, we are thrilled to be releasing the sophomore album from Crystal Stilts.
The follow-up to 2008's much loved and critically acclaimed debut, Alight Of Night, **In Love With Oblivion **continues Crystal Stilts foray into intense, spooky 60s psych and 80s dream pop but this time with more flourishes of melody and a bigger, more expansive sound.
Based in Brooklyn (via Florida), Crystal Stilts emerged alongside the very active local post-punk indie scene in 2008 yet managed to forge their own special path. They built up a heady following stateside and by the time Alight of Night was released, a flood of accolades followed. In Love With Oblivion sets the bar even higher as they reach dizzying, fuzzy heights as first class purveyors of haunting, atmospheric post-punk pop.
