Crystal Stilts – “Love Is a Wave” – [Slumberland Records]

This is a fun, jangly single from Brooklyn’s Crystal Stilts. Released a few months back on Slumberland, we’ve got a copy of the white vinyl 7-inch that’s apparently no longer available. “Love is a Wave” feels both 1980s and 1960s retro to me, with sweeping instrumentation, fast noise pop guitars, prominent keyboard, and male vocals. The B-side “Sugar Baby” feels a little more 60s to me, but is equally fun. This is toe tapping pop music that might remind you of New Zealand’s finest from back in the day with a Beach Boys undercurrent.
