Crystal Stilts is an American post-punk band from Brooklyn, New York City though their founding members, Brad Hargett and JB Townsend, were originally from Florida.


Crystal Stilts was formed in 2003 by Brad Hargett and JB Townsend.[1] After releasing one single and an EP, the pair expanded to five members before signing to Slumberland Records in the US and Angular Recording Corporation in Europe and releasing their debut, Alight of Night, in 2008. After a few bouts of touring and some down-time, the band returned in 2011 with the LP "In Love With Oblivion", in April 2011 and the "Radiant Door EP" in November 2011. In 2013 they released their 3rd LP, "Nature Noir", "expanding their sound to incorporate elements of soul, country, and folk." [2] The group currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
