Convinced? It still seems a bit sketchy to me...
Crystal Castles are laughably bad, I literally started sniggering to myself when I first heard them. Then this developed into a look of complete disbelief that they're rated so highly.
they're good, very good.
but i can't listen to them. my head burns.
Quite why pitchfork dedicate so many words to them I don't think I'll ever understand.
Won't be around much longer I feel...
the cutting edge of cool
"since Kath and Glass insist it wasn't their doing-- and since they've made clear their intention to not release any of the sampled material without permission-- we think it's high time to call off the witch hunt"
"since they say they're in the right, and we'd look stupid if we carried on hyping a band whose reputation is based on stolen work, everyone should shut up and stop questioning it"
tracks don't just magically get from someone's computer to the internet
What an awful band.
and that arcticle hardly makes them seem 'sorry' for ripping off other people, regardless of whether they tracks were released officially, they still did it without giving credit, and then let them get placed online.
"Oh everything's okay now, we're releasing a compilation of our favourite chiptune artists!"
still like 'em.
"These infringing songs are early unreleased tracks which were never performed. They are the most awful tracks associated with the band and [vocalist] Alice [Glass] herself hasn't heard most of these tracks."
This is bullshit- the CC/Lo Bat track that caused a stir is still performed by Crystal Castles, and to say that Alic Glass hasn't heard the track is absolutely ridiculous.
"...since they've made clear their intention to not release any of the sampled material without permission"
One of the tracks in question, 'Mother knows best' was issued as a split 7 single with Health. It was commercially available then, and its still available for download now.
Nice work, Pitchfork! Go, investigative journalism, go!
AND CRUSH THEM
