The Crystal Method have kicked off 2014 by offering an advance listen of their fifth studio album, titled The Crystal Method, via Hype Machine. Marking the iconic act's 20th Anniversary, the album is set for release January 14
On The Crystal Method, THE CRYSTAL METHOD's KEN JORDAN and SCOTT KIRKLAND explore various directions of electronic music. "While there's plenty of hissing beats, belching production, squealing-breaks (and) keyboards for modern EDM heads to enjoy," wrote Annie Zaleski of Alternative Press (Feb) in her review, ".the album is steeped in meticulous club music emphasizing silky grooves and sculptured adrenaline rushes." Guests includeLeAnn Rimes, Franky Perez (Scars On Broadway), Nick Thayer and mau5trap artist Le Castle Vania. "The Voice"'s season #2 contestant Dia Frampton (also known as one half of indie duo Meg & Dia) is the featured vocalist on the album's first single "Over It" impacting radio this month.
