Crystal Castles “Celestica” + Hard Summer Fest in August

June 28th, 2010

i’m somewhat disappointed in Crystal Castle’s new album as a whole… it suffers from 2010’s most rampant disease in the hipster swine community (no, not herpes), MGMT-itis, a distinct and significant lack of anything catchy. Alice Glass is cute and all, but i feel pretty much the same way about this video. (Hipster Runoff’s aka indie rock’s Perez Hilton has an amusing breakdown of it here, and this little treatise on trying to maintain non-sell-out-status in a self-marketing world is spot on.) C.C. is playing smell-A August 7th for Hard fest, tix are only sixty bucks, and with a killa lineup including Tiga, Soulwax, Green Velvet, Major Lazer, and Diplo, it’s likely to sell the fuck out (NOT LIKE CRYSTAL CASTLES though!!! they keep it REAL!!!) so get your tix here and get ‘em fast.

Congratulations, MGMT, the new album has leaked. also, anal eel fetish video for Flash Delirium. yes, you read that right.

April 1st, 2010

this video gets all freea-kay around the halfway mark, so it’s worth staying with, y’all. (not too often you get to see old men sticking eels into an iron lung anus… unless you spend a lot of time looking at Japanese porn.) Congratulations, the new album (you can preview in it’s entirety on the MGMT site here, or, you know, you could just download it) isn’t particularly bad, but it’s a somewhat lackluster follow up to Oracular Spectacular, which is pretty much a pop masterpiece. they went all acid-laced Beatles and shit, which is so hipster it’s practically off the hipster swine charts. check it out, let me know what you think… i call meh.
