Description

    Limited edition 2CD version features a bonus enhanced disc full of instrumental prog epics, unreleased tracks, exclusive b sides, remixes, a 6 minute experimental film from 2 years of travelling around the globe, the Tame Impala cover of "Vital Signs" and the video of the original version.

    The Crystal Axis is Midnight Juggernauts' second album - their first since Dystopia launched the Australian trio into a vortex of global intrigue. Befitting the DIY ethic of their self-owned and operated Siberia label, Midnight Juggernauts again opted to produce the album themselves, with engineer Chris Moore (TV on the Radio, Yeasayer, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liars) facilitating. An album that veers from percussive, hypnotic grooves to luxuriant jams, via rich Morricone-esque textural diversions, walls of sound, and 70s AM melodic forks, The Crystal Axis is a 50-minute symphony of synth-rock invention.
