Xxzxcuzx Me, Tell Me What To Post - Crystal Castles Thread

Dustin made me do it. :oops:

From Wikipedia: Crystal Castles is an experimental electronic music band from the province of Ontario consisting of producer Ethan Kath and vocalist Alice Glass. Crystal Castles are known for their chaotic live shows and their lo-fi, melancholic home productions. To listen to Crystal Castles, according to the BBC, "is to be cast adrift in a vortex of deafening pain without a safety net. You get the feeling you could do anything in the world, but that 'anything' would ultimately mean nothing. Crystal Castles marks a nuanced emotional territory that dance music never covered before."

Crystal Castles were named after the lines "The fate of the world is safe in Crystal Castles" and "Crystal Castles, the source of all power", both lines referring to fictional character 's fortress in the sky. The band was formed in December 2003 as a solo project started by Ethan Kath. Ethan Kath later discovered Alice Glass singing in her noise-punk band, and thought he had found the "missing ingredient" to his music. He asked her to record vocals over his solo instrumental tracks. In April 2005, Alice Glass recorded vocals over five original instrumentals by Kath. The microphone test for this recording session was secretly recorded by the studio's engineer and was later released as the band's first single, a limited edition 7" vinyl on London's Merok Records, released in June 2006 and sold out immediately. Glass was not aware the microphone test recording existed until Merok Records asked to release it.

Welps, xxzxcuzx me while I make this thread my new home.

I'm really confused about this Doe Deer business; it's looking like it's going to be limited to a 500 copy release in the UK for Record Store Day (no ordering from the interwebs!).
1. Doe Deer
2. Mother Knows Best - 2004 guitar version
3. Insectica - 2004 guitar version
4. Seed - 2004 guitar version
However, there is also a listing on Amazon for the 12" with a tracklisting of one, so. . . I'm not sure if I want to get my hopes up on getting a physical copy.

I never heard Insectica until deciding to research the stuff from the other Crystal Castles thread. I like it. A lot.

Someone should revive that thread, it was fun. I'm really excited for this album, I'm disppointed that Yes-No won't be on it though.

I LOVE IT. The entire EP is just delicious to no end, and I don't care what's been released or what is yet to be released, Crystal Castles is going to be my favourite album of 2010.
