Song of the Day: Crystal Castles ft. Robert Smith “Not in Love”

April 15, 2012


Unlike the song title, I am in love. And I would also love to be all blustery and belligerent and say I LOVE THIS SONG BECAUSE I LOVE ROBERT SMITH but then that wouldn’t be true, because I’d love this even without.

I actually got one song, “Right Place”, from a playlist downloaded from Obscure Sound. And then spent the new few hours hitting ‘repeat’ on my mp3 player. Albums available: None. They’ve […]
