Not to be confused with the other "Crystals" of the music world (Crystal Castles, Crystal Method), Brooklyn's Crystal Stilts play hazy, druggy, AM-radio shoegazer pop that creeps into your consciousness like evening fog. I'll admit, at first listen I found their fey, delay-heavy sound a little too quiet. But inside that hush is some truly sexy music, the types of tunes that haunt you for days. Now I've come around and it's hard for me to pick a favorite track, but "Converging in the Quiet" (available at the band's MySpace page) seems like a good tune to soundtrack the heavy white mist blanketing the city this morning. (Catch Crystal Stilts next Tuesday, Nov. 4 at Bottom of the Hill.) -- Jennifer Maerz
