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.

Ah! So good!

"Dig That Treasure" spun repeatedly last year, so I'm excited to hear the rest of the new album.

They're also three of the sweetest people I've ever met. It definitely ripples through their music.
