Like its predecessor, In Love With Oblivion never breaks a sweat. Yet, again following suit, it more than manages to make the grade all the same. This may be frustrating to some, but it's also an effortlessly cool trick to those that count. Crystal Stilts have however made significant strides since that debut. Retaining its dark atmospherics, they present themselves in turn without overt reference to Alight Of Night's oh-so-apparent checklist: Psychocandy, Unknown Pleasures and any Velvet Underground record you care to mention.

Now very much in their own zone thanks to a graveyard boogie derived from 60s, organ-filled psyche, the band's jangling guitars and never-too-much-echo ethos become pleasing accoutrements rather than weighty cornerstones. This breezy attitude works wonders too. The majority of In Love With Oblivion follows this template accordingly, only taking its foot off the gas for "Silver Sun", which lumbers out of the shade with little account of itself amongst such otherwise illustrious company.

Despite opening with an intangible, ghostly sequence, you'd be hard pressed to find a stronger cut this year than "Sycamore Tree". It's latterly a super-tight joy, cruising on iconic riffs, percussive shuffle and Brad Hargett's echoing vocals, and that's before it breaks into buzzing organ and a Brooklyn-style hoedown.

By dj - Published on
Format: Audio CD
yes, this album seeps in. but let me start off first by saying that i find it very sad that this incredible album somehow slipped through the cracks when it came out. hopefully it will eventually be appreciated. i suspect that pitchfork's mediocre review had something to do with it, but that's only how some people find their music, so i dunno. you can read other reviews and figure out who influenced who and how this band sounds like this or that, but i don't think that's important - it taints and influences expectations. what is important is how crystal stilts execute their unique and totally enveloping vibe.

but so this record is brilliant. the sounds all fit together with lots of room for you to walk in between and settle in for a nice trip to somewhere dark, strangely familiar, and warm. there's little psychedelic gems scattered throughout, and if you pay close enough attention, you'll not only appreciate the great songwriting, but also the subtle excellent execution of this album. some may complain that the singer's vocals are too reverberated or aren't mixed high enough to hear. first, that's not the case with all of the songs. so when he wants you to understand what he's saying, you'll be able to. otherwise, blend yourself into the mood fog and go with it.

i hope this record gets its dues, but for now, this is my contribution.

HASH(0x8ee3a81c) out of 5 stars One of the best albums of 2011 so far 6 Aug. 2011
By C. Kramer - Published on
I wasn't sure what to expect from these guys. I went out a limb to check out this album, and WOW was I blown away. This album has great jangly guitar riffs, and keeps you hooked to whole time. The singer has a low droning voice comparable to Ian Curtis of Joy Division or Paul Banks of Interpol, but this album shouldn't be confused with those two bands. If I would compare it to anything, it would be closer to The Velvet Underground or The Doors. I haven't heard anything quite like this for a long time. Love it!

HASH(0x8ee3a894) out of 5 stars varied & addictive, retro-psyche indie rock 21 Jun. 2011
By Charlie Quaker - Published on
Format: Audio CD
2nd album from New York band combines big, churning, ringing 60s guitar pop, psychedelic
swamp/drone dirges, melody-driven garage rock, psycho/surf rock, 50s style sock hop
shoegaze, tremolo-twanged indie rock & rootsy, dirty chord blues stomp. This is haunted,
dance-along, hummable retro psych rock with an indelibly fresh indie rock stamp. Shades of
Green Pajamas, The Cramps, the Black Angels, Solaram, Velvet Underground, Jesus & Mary
HASH(0x8ee3ac24) out of 5 stars Schizophrenic Confectionary 6 Aug. 2015
By Dominic Christ - Published on
Format: Audio CD
An epic masterstroke of dark, psychedelic pop. This record takes you to the other side and back again. It's oblique but pop, dark yet catchy, sweet and absolutely frightful. If Psychocandy is the J&MC's masterpiece, call this a Schizophrenic confectionary. The lyrics probe deeper into the unconscious than the brother's Reid ever considered venturing and the songwriting is far more varied and diverse. This album has every kind of song, yet its sequenced and paced with utter precision. Not to say it's as "important" a record as Psychocandy. Crystal Stilts have the unfortunate burden of being born too late when nothing is new, but turn off your critical historic radar and just appreciate what they've created. In the proto-punk, noise pop lineage of the Velvets, Stooges, Doors, Suicide, Mary Chain, Spaceman 3, MBV, and so on, they have created one of THE great records. The mind-numbingly dumb, middling Pitchfork review might've doomed this record to remain underground at the time of it's release, but Bradford Cox doesn't name something the #1 album of the year, ahead of releases by Radiohead, Girls, Destroyer, War on Drugs & Kurt Vile no less, for no reason. This record, along with the rest of the Stilts output, will one day be appreciated as the best of it's kind.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Crystal stilts is an excellent band and this is in my opinion their best album to date. Their style is not for everyone, but if you can get into it, you will surely enjoy these songs.
