“I’m too tired, baby,” Crystal Stilts frontman Brad Hargett barely mutters on “Star Crawl”, setting the tone for the band’s latest slow-jangling, slacker rock jam. The Brooklyn outfit put their worries and troubles aside, as they go on to roll around in a humid technical daze for the next three-and-a-half minutes, even backed by a pleasant and unexpected string section.

“Star Crawl” is off Crystal Stilts’ forthcoming third album, Nature Noir, due out on September 17th via Sacred Bones. Per a press release: “With lyrical themes probing the dark connections between the individual and its environment, along the shadowy interdependence of nature and man, the album strikes a more emotional chord than records past.”

Nature Noir Tracklist:
01. Spirit in Front of Me
02. Star Crawl
03. Future Folklore
04. Sticks and Stones
05. Memory Room
06. Worlds Gone Weird
07. Darken The Door
08. Electrons Rising
09. Nature Noir
10. Phases Forever

Crystal Stilts will support their album’s release with a U.S. tour, which includes dates alongside Deerhunter.
