Song of the Day – Friday 5/7/2010 Crystal Castles May 7, 2010

Toronto’s electro-punk duo Crystal Castles are known for several things: crazy strobe-light shows, copyright infringements, violent fits on stage, last-minute gig cancellations, oh, and great music.

How producer/songwriter Ethan Kath and vocalist Alice Glass are able to get away with their antics has much to do with the fact that they really do make great music, however, that too is debatable.  Their music has been described as, “the kind of music that you just want to follow like a cult, or hate, with every fibre of your being.”

Crystal Castles’s second self-titled album (we’ll call this one: Crystal Castles 2010) will drop on 5/24/2010.  They will also headline the HARD Summer Tour at the Fox Theater in Oakland on 8/6/2010 (let’s cross our fingers that they actually show up, and even more importantly, that they’ll be ballin’ not brawlin’ on stage)…

Ronika, the British sugary-sweet dance-pop princess (not yet queen) has been compared to early Madonna and Gwen Stefani…the video for the song is just as adorably sugary-sweet, but to hear a little of the ‘disco sour’ check out her MySpace link below…

Ronika – Radio Love Love

Ronika’s EP ‘Do Or Die/Paper Scissors Stone’ will be released on 4/19/2010…check out her MySpace page and listen to the Madonna/Gwen/Kylie-esque ‘Wi Yoo’

“Who gives a f**k about a possessive apostrophe?”  OK, maybe not as catchy as Vampire Weekend’s “Oxford Comma” but apparently Norwegian band, Harrys Gym (sans possessive apostrophe) don’t give a f**k…
