electronic MUSICIAN - July - 2013 - The Crystal Method


The July 2013 issue of electronic MUSICIAN features The Crystal Method.  "We've been accused of being too bombastic with our sounds, and I am guilty as charged," says the Crystal Method's Scott Kirkland.  "That's what we do."  EDM veterans Kirkland and Ken Jordan talk about recording their self-titled fifth album, a dizzying crash-out of terribly beautiful sounds, ear-tickling cut-up vocals, and big dance beats.
