Ode to Electro: Top 5 Destructive Tracks
Perhaps I came a little mentally unprepared for the Neon Indian / Crystal Castles show last night because I had NO idea it was going to be so epically loud and amazing. Its fair to say that Crystal Castles performance was the music equivalent of getting my teeth kicked in .. in a good way if that were even possible .. Imagine not being able to see who is playing – You hear the solid drum beat paired with a dark heavy synth rocking some 8-bit fusion and the vocals kick in which could only come from the most hardcore-est chick ever. Well wrong, seeing this performance come from 5 foot something mannequin-esque Alice Glass swinging a strobe light through the air was an opportunity I recommend to anyone who is a fan of electro/punk. A couple real crowd pleasers was – of course – “Crimewave” (Health remix) and a couple new songs towards then end that will NOT disappoint CC fans. So I figured the only way to pay tribute to such an experience would be to post my top 5 favorite and most destructive electro tracks. It goes without saying (yet ill do it anyway) there are far too many tracks I would love to share in this post but here for your listening pleasure is my narrowed down list. Hope you enjoy, and I invite any of you readers to share your opinions (Love or Hate welcome). Take care.

4. Acid Girls – The Numbers Song
3. Scissor Sisters- She’s My Cream (Three Stacks Remix)
