Crystal Castles demand your attention. The band's live performances convey a gleeful venom lacking in many of their contemporaries, thanks mainly to frontwoman's Alice Glass's fearless stage histrionics and savagely cool personal style.  It's all in the execution: her ink-black bowl haircut, Cheshire Cat sneer, and brutishly rendered eye makeup all scream "Fuck You," even when Glass's own glitched-out shrieks are incomprehensible. Ironically, Glass's nihilistic facade only makes people love her more; her look has been eagerly co-opted by dozens of American Apparel-clad  youths.
