Song: Love is a Wave
Artist: Crystal Stilts
Album: Love is a Wave 7″
Label: Slumberland Records
Notes: none
Analysis: The new single from critically-acclaimed group Crystal Stilts, bops along with surf-rock riffs and sweeping Morrissey-like vocals by lead singer Brad Hargett, but at just under 2 minutes, didn’t blow me out of the water, so to speak. I’ll admit that I haven’t heard much else from them, however Love is a Wave does do enough to get me interested. My iPod hard drive space is very precious to me, so sometimes it is hard for me to get into newer bands without hearing something that I really enjoy. But I think that Love is a Wave might be just good enough for me to dig deeper into Crystal Stilts’ short catalogue. Check it out and let me know if you agree or not. Or, if there are any fans of the band reading this, I’d love to hear some song suggestions.
