    Being from Brooklyn seems to be origin enough to warrant at least a little buzz. However, while some acts don't quite deserve it, Crystal Stilts are shaking things up with new music, and a groovy vibe we actually like.

    On the wake of their debut album, Alight of Night(Slumberland), the band is doing anything but sleeping... and we're doing anything but snoring through their Velvet Underground infused "spectral avant-garage" sound.

    THe band formed in 2003 with debut single "Shattered Shine" earning some positive feedback in the music community. Shows with Blood on the Wall, 1990s and The Long Blondes earned them cred, and eventually a 4 song EP in 2006. Now finally realizing their ideas for a full album, the band has a chance to make their mark on the minimalist post-punk pop scene... if they can deliver. So far, we like what we hear. Check it out for yourself. -joe puglisi
