HIPSTER WEEK: Crystal Castles-Crystal Castles

Filed under: Albums — Teddy @ 11:18 pm


I must be missing something here. No really, something isn’t clicking. Everyone and their brother seem to adore this band. What’s the appeal? It’s boring after the first minute. There are much better electronic acts out there. Seriously, if someone wants to explain to me what this band is all about go ahead. Just in case you’ve never heard of them, Crystal Castles is glitchy electronic with thrashy vocals. This is another album I would never post but Crystal Castles seem to love being hipsters. Both members of the band are snobs, not to mention they love to pick fights with venues, fans, security, etc. They are so hip, they are rock-stars without being rock-stars!



  1. you don’t get it? do you like joy division and new order? they are like the new joy division and new order in 1 band. the songs are sad and painful. i met them at after a show last year, they were not snobs at all. they were wheeling a kid in a wheelchair into their backstage area to hang out. the kid later said to me “no one has ever treated me like a normal human like this.”
