It feels like it's been a really long time since Crystal Stilts released any new music. A really brief bit of research shows that it's been over a year, so if you found yourself agreeing with that first assertion, pat yourself on the back, because you were right. Anyway, you can reset your new Crystal Stilts music countdown clock because they've got a new 7-inch available for order now called "Shake The Shackles." It's a tease for their next full-length, likely out early next year, and it handily accomplishes that task: a lot of the usual classic psych rock signifiers are there, but there's a brightness to the chorus that feels like a nod to Slumberland bands through history, leaving us pretty interested in seeing how this album is going to turn out.
