Brooklyn's Crystal Stilts have been working their way around the city's small venues tearing up the opening slots for a while now and following a string of bad luck and missed connections they finally they have an EP to show for it. The four song EP is fully representative of the band's shuffle by way of shoegaze song style. Somehow full of equal measures of space and murky haze, the band pull the disaffected pop card like pro's while never sounding too aloof or disconnected from the full-stomp jangle of a beat that brims under their songs. Purposefully stripped back, the band let the simple melodies and frazzled din speak louder than any over complicated arrangement possibly could and with surprisingly catchy results. I'm keen to see how the band stacks up with a bit more breathing room so hopefully an album will follow in the works.
