sneak diss, or sincerity?
"i wish my former vocalist the best of luck in her future endeavors. i think it can be empowering for her to be in charge of her own project. it should be rewarding for her considering she didn't appear on Crystal Castles' best known songs. (she's not on Untrust Us. Not In Love, Vanished, Crimewave, Vietnam, Magic Spells, Knights, Air War, Leni, Lovers Who Uncover, Violent Youth, Reckless, Year of Silence, Intimate, 1991, Good Time, Violent Dreams etc.). people often gave her credit for my lyrics and that was fine, i didn't care. "
Ethan released a new song on their Soundcloud, here's the link.
yeah thats a great song too. actually saw the music video played on mtv sometimes. many of the songs on ethan's list weren't among my favorites anyway. i wish they weren't fighting though, i think they made a good team. i like ethan and i like alice.
not to cause anything, but what did she actually do in a creative sense? I know she was great for the showmanship of their live shows, but what did she give to the creative process? I like go give credit when it's due.
he deleted the edited post, posted a new one, then edited it
The showmanship aspect aka her stage presence and her voice both were important parts of how the band succeeded. I am not saying she deserves a majority of credit for CC's success, but she deserves credit for what she's done.
he may have a point but...
>crystal castles is nothing without Alice
glad Ethan is finally getting to recognition he deserves.
He WAS Crystal Castles and still is. Alice was just the personality.
When Steve Jobs died, Apple didn't. They made more money than ever.
Still looking forward to more of his stuff.
Whether he goes through a plethora of guest vocalist, or just finds a replacement.
It's not like with other duos like Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer where they both brought vital elements to the band.
going to listen to the song when I get home.
When I saw CC live it was kind of a disappointment really how much I enjoyed their albums. Whoever worked that show's sound should be taken out back and shot.
I don't mind Alice, as she's really the face of CC, but it sounds like she was the main reason for CC's breakup.
well you can't hit it out of the park every time, but maybe it was just a token to show that alice can be easily replaced, especially given the comment in the op. the new singer's voice sounds like a weak imitation of alice's though. i think it would be a better idea if he just let it go and did something a little different. when he's worked with male vocalists his output has been just as compelling. "year of silence" is an awesome song, for example.
Tell me how he's wrong though. Everyone knows he's pretty much behind all of the actual music, going so far as instructing Alice on the melody she should be singing etc.
She's literally just there as a face for tumblr and waifu fags to gravitate to.
her cunt layed over my neck in a show in LA a couple years ago. I actually rubbed my hand on it and smelled it. it smelled like a arm pit
. Ethan isnt wrong though. Alice was just the appeal and presence of the band. God bless you Mr. Kath.
