I love uncovering hot online music sites like Pandora and Grooveshark that allow us all to discover new music, but I really don't pimp much music itself since I prefer to leave that to the experts on Buzz. But today I thought I should make an exception for some truly geek approved tunes. I was recently turned on to Crystal Castles by a pal, and have been totally smitten ever since.
Straight out of Toronto, Crystal Castles uses hot pixeltronic beats and electronic grooves that make me want to get up and move! Named after the castle from one of my fave childhood TV shows (and it's also a name of an old Atari Game), their first album was released here in the US mid March to solid reviews. Plus the fact that they relied on the wonders of the Internet to climb their way up from the underground make this duo totally geek chic. They have a whole Mario meets electronica vibe that I'm really digging! Check out a few of my fave tracks below called Crime Wave and Courtship Dating and tell me what you think about them when you read more.
