premiere: Cryptacize :: "blue tears"
Cryptacize's adventurous second album, Mythomania, is due out April 21 on Asthmatic Kitty. The label hooked us up with the premiere of "Blue Tears," a galloping, charmingly fragmented avant-pop jam that sounds like dramatic '60s girl-group pop-meets-guitarist Chris Cohen's former band, Deerhoof. Nedelle Torrisi's voice shines brightly with what Sufjan Stevens calls "the uncomplicated clarity of a 1950s movie musical," making it pretty easy to get lost in the group's simple, oddly infectious melodies. Bonus: you can download two more songs from Mythomania at MOKB and Stereogum.
