Support 88Nine And This Artist:
Crystal Stilts is a Brooklyn
, N.Y., quartet. Its sound -- equally droll, moody and buoyant -- has roots in early '80s Manchester pop
as well as in minimalist garage-rock
acts. The band has drawn comparisons to Interpol
, Joy Division
and early The Jesus and Mary Chain
-- with whom it also shares a penchant for stand-up drumming in the manner of The Velvet Underground
's Maureen "Moe" Tucker. Slumberland Records released the band's debut full-length, Alight Of Night
, in October 2008, following an earlier EP.
