For those of you who know me, you know that Crystal Castles really isn’t my thing. Much respect for Alice Glass and the gang, but I’d rather watch the Twilight trilogy back to back before listening to most of their music. That being said, their music can be quite lovely when the screaming subsides. The single Not In Love off of their second self titled album got refurbished with vocals by Robert Smith for the release. I must admit, the results are spectacular. Definitely don’t miss out on this one.
It’s turning into a mixtape Friday. Monarchy presents their winter mixtape featuring music from Crystal Castles, Black Strobe, The Twelves, Friendly Fires, Azari & Ill, Lifelike, Kylie Minogue and of course Monarchy. They thew in Friendly Fires and Azari & Ill’s Stay Here, so you know it’s going to be good.

I’ve never likes Crystal Castles, except for maybe Crimewave (Crystal Castles Vs. Health), but that was a while back. The duo is out with 2 new EPs this week, Doe Dear & Celestica. I’m really into the single Celesta, which is much more laid back then what you’d expect from them. Expect their new album (another self-title LP) this June.
