Crystal Stilts burst out of Brooklyn's storied post-punk indie scene in 2008 with a string of releases that culminated in their fantastic debut album Alight Of Night. Deftly combining the spooked 60s Texas psych of 13th Floor Elevators and Red Crayola, the gothic blues/punk howl of Gun Club, the dark, experimental DIYism of early Flying Nun/Xpressway groups and a dash of classic 60s pop by way of early Mary Chain b-sides, Alight Of Night won universal accolades and established the band as first-class purveyors of haunting, atmospheric post-punk pop.
Spring 2009 saw them follow-up with the excellent 7" single of "Love Is A Wave," followed by tours of the US and Europe and the release of Alight Of Night in the UK to yet more accolades. All the while they were writing new tunes, experimenting with new sounds and planning their next moves. The first fruits of this came with the incredible "Shake The Shackles" single, closely followed by the album "In Love With Oblivion", released on Fortuna POP! in April 2011.
