ALBUM: Outgoing Behavior
FILE UNDER: Indie / Pop / Rock
LABEL: Suicide Squeeze
INFO: Just one year ago, Crystal Skulls released their debut, Blocked Numbers. Listeners got smart and stylish songs nestled comfortably into the folds and corners of various timeframes and musical movements. The band delivered a thoughtful, eloquent, and singular record and toured extensively, playing the tunes with good and feisty intentions to those that came to listen.
But Crystal Skulls don’t mess around and a mere 12 months after Blocked Numbers their second full-length album, Outgoing Behavior, finds the band forging full steam ahead. Channeling a hint of Meat Is Murder era-Smiths, sitting on a treasure chest of songs that Todd Rundgren would surely shit for, flirting with the soulful sway of a post-granola Grateful Dead mixed with brisk and brittle wit... The band has carved a distinct niche in the vibrant Pacific Northwest climate. As Outgoing Behavior unfolds the ante is upped considerably. The band will be touring throughout the year in support of the record. You'll love it if you come.
