The Crystal Method may have a lower profile now than they did in the early '90s, when "Vegas" stuck them in the vanguard of the burgeoning "electronica" explosion, but they're definitely survivors. "Drive By Night," the most recent album by the L.A. duo, features the trademark distorted breakbeats and darkly atmospheric grooves. It's not exactly breaking new ground, but it's a solid collection of songs. However, seeing the Crystal Method live is much different than listening to their albums, as they twist and remix other people's songs. Listen to a set from earlier this summer and you'll get snatches of Deadmau5, Jay-Z freestyling over Justice and deftly twisted Moby. There's a $20 cover for this DJ set, and if you're looking to party, it's worth the price.
