Crystal Castles

Described as 'the kind of music that you just want to follow like a cult, or hate, with every fibre of your being', and listening to which has been described as '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.
Their second studio album again entitled 'Crystal Castles', and is set for release on June 7. The album has been produced by Ethan Kath in various places including a church in Iceland, a self built cabin in northern Ontario, a garage behind an abandoned convenience store in Detroit. Inevitably, the eponymous album has been leaked, and as a result it's digital release has been rushed to April 23. The album is sightly more laidback that their first release, one criticism though is the constant repetition of the same drum beat, which gets a little repetitive but all this is masked by the beautiful new sound of the album. They've swapped harsh gritty sounds for soothing synths, bar a few tracks like 'Doe Deer'.
