NME Cool List 2008

Before talking about NME's seventh annual cool list, it's kind of cool to look quickly at the 2007 Top 10 to see who's still ... cool. Lethal Bizzle? Barely. Amy Winehouse? Lucky to be alive. Ditto Keith Richards. Beth Ditto? No. Last year one, two, and three went, respectively, to Gallows' Frank Carter,… More »

Iceland Airwaves ’08 Report

Before we kick off the bulk of this week's CMJ coverage, we're gonna look all the way back to last week's Iceland Airwaves Festival. Stereogum sent photog Abbey Braden overseas to take it all in.

New Crystal Castles Video – “Knights”

The second Crystal Castles video in as many weeks isn't trying to be cute like the HEALTH mashup's Shaun Of The Deady clip. This one's unfolds in two dimensions at once (on the streets and in the club), and features an updated, more alt version of The Shining twins and masks that come… More »

Crystal Castles Brought Their Strobe Light To NYC This Week

On the walk home from Pianos (to see Port O'Brien and Delta Spirit, should have some pics later), we passed a very sold out Mercury Lounge, where LA ass-kickers HEALTH and 8-bit dance outfit Crystal Castles spent the evening raising hell, danceably.

New Crystal Castles Video – “Air War”

Bonus points to anyone who can tell us the formula that was needed to come up with the 8-bit sundae video for Toronto duo Crystal Castle's "Air War." No peeking. This + This = this. That was fun. What about this version? Crystal Castles is out 3/18 on Last Gang. More »
