Re-Ups is their second full length release. Cristal use computers to mutate and stretch sound spectra into long forms balanced against tenuous, implied melodies. The barely perceptible abuts the overwhelming. Placid sound fields are lacerated with incisions of digital fragments and static on the opening track. Sonic reductions boil and release evaporate melodies on the track Xicifu and then are decimated by the scouring noise of Left of Swept. All across Re-Ups, disorienting and comforting elements sit side by side. When so many noise and experimental artists seem to be hemorrhaging releases, Cristal's compositional rigor is refreshing.
