So it's New Year's Eve, you know. And while there are many options surely at your disposal (like eating lobster on your couch and watching Iron Eagle II!), we recommend you go see the crazy electro danceness of Crystal Castles. Ring it in, guys. Ring. It. In.

Toronto's Crystal Castles are a thrash duo that throws down some serious data-dance- rock jams. This furiously fun music is lo-fi, decidedly distorted, and entirely electrical. In other words, it all sounds like the soundtrack to most of those Atari 2600 games.

Like many electro duos (Simian Mobile Disco, Digitalism, Justice etc.), these guys first got noticed via their remix work (they've torn down and done up songs for Bloc Party and their pals Klaxons), but have since taken off on their own. After all, if you really love a remixer, you set them free. Crystal Castles are in the middle of a massive tour and should only get better as their crowds of punk-gamers get bigger.
