I like them quite a lot, yeah. Sometimes the vox get a bit grating,but generally they're awesome.

Seeing them live in May as well

Are you serious? It's probably bigger in LA alone than it is in all of Europe combined. You've got guys like Steve Aoki making this **** popular all over the place, and it seems like everyone and their mother is in love with Justice. I mean, just look at the Coachella lineup this year. They basically got the entire rosters of Modular, Ed Banger, and Institubes records, not to mention all the Indie/Dance groups they got like Hot Chip, etc. Compare that to the rest of the dance music on the lineup and it's obvious which genre is more popular. So, yeah, I’d say Electro House has basically taken over the US. Even without Coachella, I've had the chance to see MSTRKRFT, Crystal Castles, and Digitalism within recent months, so maybe this stuff isn't big in Boston, but it certainly is elsewhere. Last I checked Boston wasn't really a hotbed for dance music anyway.

Crystal Castles is ok. I really liked them when I first heard them ages ago, but it seems like the more they release the less I like them. I saw them live in October and they weren't really that good, either.

I think I'd take Kitsune stuff over DFA myself.

Crystal Castles have been knocking around for a good two years.
Now every teen wants to say they're into them because they saw them on 'Skins'.
