Crystal Castles Get Reworked By HEALTH

Crystal Castles have offered up a remix of their 2010 track ‘Suffocation’ reworked by LA experimental dance punks HEALTH. Previously, Crystal Castles created a brilliant remix for HEALTH’s ‘Crimewave’.

Album Review: Trust – TRST

Formed in 2009, the Toronto-based duo Trust are Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski (also a member in Austra).  They release their forthcoming debut full length, ‘TRST’ via Arts & Crafts on February 28, 2012 on vinyl / CD and by digital download. To provide some reference to explain the sound on this album – it is like a fusion of The Knife, Austra and Salem. It is dark, left of centre dance music with a hint of gothic swagger. ‘TRST’ is a very solid debut across all 11 tracks and definitely worth picking up as the soundtrack to kick off or as the come down for any party.

MP3: Trust – Bulbform

Watch the video for Candy Walls from TRST below

“Tales of lust, wax, and erotomania carry along on a dense black vapor of speed, space and tears.”

Standout tracks: The slow, brooding and beautiful ‘Shoom’ and the synth-heavy, electro drum beat laden ‘This Ready Flesh’.
