Today, our Northwest Music Spotlight is on Crystal Skulls! Here’s a little from the Crystal Skulls on their new record…

“Just one year ago, Crystal Skulls released their celebrated debut album, Blocked Numbers, and listeners got smart and stylish songs nestled comfortably into the folds and corners of various timeframes and musical movements. The band delivered a thoughtful, eloquent, and singular record. But Crystal Skulls don’t fuck around and a mere 12 months after Blocked Numbers their second full-length album, Outgoing Behavior, finds the band forging full steam ahead. Channeling a hint of Meat Is Murder era-Smiths, sitting on a treasure chest of songs that Todd Rundgren would surely shit for, flirting with the soulful sway of a post-granola Grateful Dead mixed with brisk and brittle wit, the Skulls second effort is a loose affair in the best of ways, showcasing a band comfortable in their skin and toting the necessary confidence to stretch that skin far and wide.” – Read more.

    Awesome. This band deserves so much more attention than they have received. Their live show is extremely tight as well.
