Crystal Castles release second single "Deicide" with new vocalist Edith

Crystal Castles will continue without long-time vocalist Alice Glass, with producer-songwriter Ethan Kath dedicated to continuing the popular project by enlisting a new vocalist. The new other-half of the experimental dance duo is a woman named Edith, as mysterious as the ethereal vocals she showcased on "Frail" earlier this year. Our second taste of the new Crystal Castles comes in the form of "Deicide", a pounding rave anthem in-line with what we've come to expect, and love, from the Ethan's music.

Live Review: What So Not + Bad News Toilet - Karova Lounge, Ballarat (05.06.13)

With Wednesday nights in Ballarat traditionally deemed as “Uni Night”, there was no questioning the number of goon filled students who would be out in force, keen to ditch the exam study for some solid dancing on the floors of Karova Lounge. With word of Sydney electric duo What So Not being in town, which comprises of Chris ‘Emoh’ Emerson and one Harley ‘Flume’ Streten (Yes THE Flume), this not only gave uni kids more reason to procrastinate, but also saw the average full=time worker like myself choosing to stay out on what we still refer to as a 'school night'. Badass, I know.

Album Review: Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles (III) (2012 LP)


The unapologetically harsh brand of EDM purveyed by Crystal Castles is inherently limited, despite its evident uniqueness. Nonetheless, the Canadian duo have managed to develop a more nuanced sound with the release of their third album.

Live Review: Falls Festival Day 4 - Erskine Falls, Lorne (31.12.11)

The countdown to the countdown was beginning as the festival warmed up for the day. I was hurting all over; my body hated me for not protecting it from the dangers of the sun and the liquor. But it was New Year’s Eve, so there was no other option but to suck it up and get back amongst it. Gossling was the perfect welcome back to the real world, with her soft, brooding yet heartening and peaceful tunes on the Valley Stage.

Live Review: Field Day 2012 - The Domain (01.01.12)

There are only a handful of Australian festivals that can arouse the kind of excitement that always surrounds Fuzzy’s Field Day, without a doubt the biggest New Year ’s Day celebration in Sydney, always bringing quality line-ups to our shores.

DZ Deathrays to support Crystal Castles in Brisbane and Adelaide

After frontwoman Alice Glass proved her rock star caliber earlier in the year by ignoring doctor’s warnings and rocking out on stage with a broken ankle, Crystal Castles return to our shores, joining the summer festival circuit with sets at Falls Festival, Field Day and Southbound.

Live Review: Big Day Out 2011 - Sydney Olympic Park (26 and 27.01.11)

Finding it a handy way to catch the vast majority of bands who took over Sydney Olympic Park for Big Day Out in 2010, I once again decided to venture out to the festival grounds for the two consecutive days of the 2011 event. Having seen such a ridiculous amount of amazing music over this period I've decided to break this review down by the eight main stages. But before we get started, let's give a bit of an overview...
