Crystal Stilts - "Future Folklore"

New MusicadminComment

Considering how much I loved Crystal Stilts' last album, of course I'm looking forward to their next LP, Nature Noir. The album is looking at a release on Sacred Bones records on September 17th, and this newly released cut titled "Future Folklore" comes off a lot clearer than most of the band's songs. The things is Crystal Stilts' recordings are typically layered, smudgy, and a little psychedelic. With a straightforward groove and some raw rock 'n' roll guitar leads, "Future Folklore" is one of the Stilts' most intelligible songs yet. However, I wouldn't mark it as a bad move. The group definitely comes through with a significant amount of swagger despite their usual deadpan vocal delivery. Enjoy!
