In Love With Oblivion

In Love With Oblivion by Crystal Stilts
Released: Apr 2011
Label: Slumberland Records
Since coming together in 2003, Crystal Stilts have garnered more than a few comparisons to Joy Division and Crispy Ambulance. There's no doubt these post-punk prophets of gloom exert an influence. But on In Love With Oblivion the group -- sharp stylists, with a knack for moody sonic candy -- also exudes a gothic-garage vibe that calls to mind early Cramps and 45 Grave. With its droning organ, sci-fi effects and monotone croon, "Alien Rivers" is a great example of this style. Another one is "Prometheus At Large," which closes out the album with reverb jangle and a chug-a-lug groove.
