Brooklyn-based noise-gazers Crystal Stilts who have been keeping themselves out of the indie-spotlight and away from the fog machine for much of 2010, will be releasing a 7-inch single on Oct. 26 via Slumberland. The A-side will feature “Shake the Shackles” while the flipside will contain “Magnetic Moon” which is described via press release as “a bluesy chug that comes on like some lost swamp-pop classic.” Muddy Waters, anyone?
Unfortunately, the band asserts that both songs will not be featured on their next, yet-to-be named LP. However, the four-piece plans on releasing a new album “early 2011” release. Winter months and Crystal Stilts = a good combination. [Exclaim!]
