Ethan Kath and Alice Glass make up Crystal Castles, the experimental digi-dance group hailing from Canada. Their third album, the oppression-themed record III, saw the most solid and sophisticated recordings to date, with singles "Plague" and "Wrath of God" graciously available for free to Castles fans on certain dates. Toning down the thrash and riot of previous albums, III taps into the duo's more pensive side, resulting in some beautifully somber and nearly mournful tracks—but their live shows remain as full of chaotic energy as ever. Catch Crystal Castles this week as they play the Fox during their extensive world tour now through October.
