Crystal Castles Information
Crystal Castles, also the name of a â€™93 video game console sold by Ataris, is better associated with the electro pop band from Toronto. Producer Ethan Kath and Alice Glass make up the duo that while being known for their chaotic live shows have made their records mostly from low-fi home productions. The band's eponymous debut album was included in the "Top 50 Greatest Albums of the Decade" by NME Magazine, at number 39, and was reviewed as â€œdrawing so much of its power from unpredictabilityâ€¦ this is what an arcade fire sounds like.â€ Crystal Castles sophomore release, also named Crystal Castles, but referred to as Crystal Castles II for classification sake, is more of the same high pitched weirdness, if more accessible. The band is currently on tour promoting the latest album, finishing up their International tour next week and beginning a 12-date US tour for the month of August. The duo will take over Bostonâ€™s House of Blues on August 17th with Rusko, Sinden and Destructo.
