    Thumbs up Crystal Castles

    Just heard this band the other day while going to the beach in this random friends car. Now I'm totally hooked. Anybody else heard them? They got tons of great reviews from NME and BBC. Just got their new self-titled and it owns.

    Maybe they'll make an appearance at Coach 09

    Anyone know why "Vanished" doesn't get credited as a remix of Van She's "Sex City"?

    Saw them at SXSW and they were kind of disappointing / stupid.

    Really? I love it when she sings that way. I love it all, actually! I hope they can put on a decent live show.

    I'm glad I am not the only person on this board who likes them. They would be great in the Gobi or Mojave this year.. A shame they won't be there.

    Hello everybody, I'm "the new one". Just found this board by accident and love what i read here. unfortunately I'm living too far away to join this happening. Hope, I can be part of that nice crowd here anyway.
    By the way: a friend of mine ordered the Crystal Castles CD a few weeks ago from UK and yesterday it arrived! Fuck, YEAH! Now were going to celebrate this by spending a stoopid music-listening evening on his carpet aftey buying freaky clothes to wear... great music calls for a special way to honor it ;-)

    This is the first time that I joined a board where the main language is english so I'm afraid you have to deal with me making mistakes ;-)

    cheers

    Your English is good. Welcome to the board!

    And I'm starting to have a weird moment where I'm realizing that all this time I thought I saw Crystal Castles on the poster and they apparently weren't. Wow.

    He means this poster:



    You can only include a picture in your post by linking it.

    Also, I went to Berlin last year and loved it!

    I wasn't ever aware of them even being on the poster. On their myspace it says their in Europe.

    I missed them when they came through Calgary last and was wondering how they were live and whether I had a made a mistake not going at all.
    Has anyone seen them - I did see someone saying that they weren't good - I'm going to Ladytron in May and I know they were bashed for their live show before...but hoping that they were wrong!
    I'd like to see C.C. next time through...worth it???

    I'd say no, honestly. It's not even like I don't like that type of music, but really, its basically just the lead singer choking/trying to hang herself with the mic cord. If you're into that, go and if not don't waste your money.

    Yeah, CC weren't that great live. I wouldn't mind watching their set for a bit at Coachella, but I definitely wouldn't pay just to see them.

    Plus all their songs sound exactly the same.
