New Crystal Stilts – “Prismatic Room”

When I featured Crystal Stilts in an installment of The Outsiders, I posted “Crippled Croon,” a standout from their recent self-titled Woodsist EP. As mentioned then, it’s an older recording from way back in ’05, but the Brooklyn band has a full-length of new material Alight Of Night forthcoming, fittingly, on Slumberland. They recently posted a track from it up at their MySpace. Head there to hear the shimmery dream-pop of “Prismatic Room” and get an idea of why we can’t stop listening to CS. Also, that isn’t an updated photo — Frankie, ex-Vivian Girls, is their current drummer (speaking of bands we can’t stop listening to…). If you want to see what the current Stilts look like, you’ll have to check them out in person. The dates:
