Mystic Mountains is a Melbourne-based trio that represent the culminating response to Crystal Castles and that whole game-chip-generated electronic music. While Mystic Mountains play stuff that's a little less raunchy, a little more pop in structure, and a little more melodious than Crystal Castles and those affiliated with that "movement," the parallels are undeniable.
"CCCTTTT" actually is a hipster mash-up of a Crystal Castles track and the Teenagers' "Scarlett Johansson" (coincidence that I just posted about the Teenagers?) that's actually quite good.
Hey, if I lived in Australia, I'd be down with these dudes, out at every show. Why not. Solid act. Check out a handful of tracks below ... and from what I understand, there's only more goodness in store!
