Gloomy jangle pop New Yorkers Crystal Stilts return in Septmeber with a new full length album titled Nature Noir, their first since the brilliant In Love With Oblivion, from a couple of years ago.

The band have hopped from Slumberland Records to the premier proponents of New York rock currently, Sacred Bones. They will be putting out the album on September 17th.

On the new album Crystal Stilts are said to be “bridging and expanding their intensive tastes in Soul, Folk, Psych, Country, Proto-punk and onward, it’s apparent that their new formulary is more subtle and fully realized than ever.” In comparison to their previous albums Nature Noir “strikes a more emotional chord” and “reaches forth with a very human yearning.” You can get a flavour of this with the song “Star Crawl” below. Beneath is Nature Noir‘s track list and album cover. The band also has a number of tour dates, including some with Deerhunter. Those are listed at the bottom.

Nature Noir track list:

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
