Crystal Stilts are a Brooklyn, N.Y., quartet. They sound ‘equally droll, moody and buoyant’ has roots in early ’80s Manchester pop as well as in minimalist garage-rock acts. The band has drawn comparisons to Interpol, Joy Division and early The Jesus and Mary Chain with whom they also shares a penchant for stand-up drumming in the manner of The Velvet Underground’s Maureen ‘Moe’ Tucker. Slumberland Records released the band’s debut full-length, Alight Of Night, in October 2008, following an earlier EP.
