New Jam from Crystal Castles

Interestingly, I don’t think I’ve ever actually written about Crystal Castles on this site, though I jam to the band quite frequently.  On their newest single, which should be from their forthcoming album, the group is showing some real progression, musically.  They’re not relying on the old 8-bit samples and heavy-handed beats, rather they’re working on letting the song evolve.  Alice’s vocals are sort of hidden in the track, and while it doesn’t hit nearly as hard as their earlier club-bangers, it’s still got a groove you can throw on when you’re dancing with your homies. Totally digging it.
