iTunes Review

Crystal Antlers’ previous release, 2009’s Tentacles, was a careening, feral trip fueled by the most muscular psychedelic tendencies heard in rock music in a long, long time — actually, in decades. This L.A. band is more than a throwback to those days; they seem to have figured out how to time travel, inhale deeply, and hold it until they burst back through the time shield to 2011, exhaling into cavernous sound booths and analog equipment after pushing the “RECORD” button. “Jules’ Story” ignites Two-Way Mirror, with the Antlers’ trademark roar of ravenous guitars and stinging cymbals pillaging everything in their path. But on “Séance,” there is a bit of a surprise: screamer Jonny Bell’s rage has quelled, to something like an indignant (or alarmed) rant, and it’s a fresh, new texture for the band. Much of Two-Way Mirror is tempered with slightly more refined edges, not just in Bell’s vocals but in the warm, vintage organ notes and melodic song structures. The full-on barn-burners, like the title track and “By the Sawkill,” are blessedly offset by songs like the gorgeous “Summer Solstice” and the hazy “Sun Bleached.”

This group has kept my faith alive in music for the time being, it really is a breath of fresh air. Im into the pyschedelic expermintal type of thing they got going, i like how the vocals are sung loud yet kept low enough to all sync in together very well. The album goes along from beginning to end and the flow of it starting out strong then relaxing in the end is nice. Im very glad i found this band, ive been searching for new music for days and im happy to stumble across this one. I actually bought the album when i cant even remember the last time ive done that. Everything just sounds so much alike these days and nothing really stands out to me, seems like the same structure and same soft vocals that dont fit. This is one of the best albums of 2011!!!!



For the cover alone...

Can't beat a Raymond Pettibon album cover, even if it elicits further comparisons to Sonic Youth. Also like the music.

Long Beach, California's Crystal Antlers began turning heads in 2008 with their recording debut, EP, a release that was produced by Ikie Owens (known for his work with the Mars Volta) and noted for its blend of psychedelic, garage, and prog rock sounds. Jonny Bell (bass, vocals, woodwinds), Andrew King (guitar, organ), Victor Rodriguez (organ), Kevin Stuart (drums), and Damian Edwards (percussion) soon developed a reputation for eccentric live shows and earned comparisons to Comets on Fire and Les...
