Alice Glass and Ethan Kath are [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Crystal Castles[/lastfm]. They have a considerable fan base following their every move. NME named their début one of the Top 50 Greatest Albums of the Decade.

Their second CD is nothing short of brilliant. The tracks were produced by Ethan Kath at various locations, including a church in Iceland, a self-built cabin in northern Ontario, an abandoned convenience store garage in Detroit, and two songs recorded in the London studio of Paul “Phones” Epworth.

Back in December the band released a cover of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Platinum Blonde’s[/lastfm] “Not in Love” featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Robert Smith[/lastfm] of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Cure[/lastfm] on vocals. It’s available on the Crystal Castles II album re-release as a bonus track.

We just got our hands on Robert’s remix of the same song and it’s worth a listen.

    This track is very groovy indeed! RIGHT ON ROBERT! Hmm, perhaps this with several other new tracks will make it on the Mixed Up re-release 2nd disk of extras?
