Word arrived some time ago that
a new Crystal Antlers album, Two-Way
Mirror
is en route via the group’s own Recreation Ltd. Label. It drops next
week, and the band has it streaming now in its entirety over at Grooveshark so
check it out.

 

Here’s the backstory: In
early 2010, following the release of their first full-length album and the
completion of nine US and European tours, Crystal Antlers finally settled down
in the small Mexican farming town of La Punta Banda-it was there that the bulk
of what would become Two-Way
Mirror
 was
born. After the drastic downsizing of their label, the legendary Touch and Go
Records, the band was ready to take a moment and begin to bridge the gap into
new territory. Beginning with their first two self-releases following their
break with TG (Tapes Volume #1 Tentacles
Era
, and Little Sister/Dead Horses 7-inch) the band began expl,oring new
pathways and genres, touching on elements of avant-garde pop, surf rock, 1970s
folk, and grunge. Combined with their already constantly evolving sound of
experimental, punk, noise & psychedelia, and newest addition/influence to
the band, organist Cora Foxx, Crystal Antlers developed a sound uniquely their
own. The completed tracking was sent to acclaimed producer/mixer Jack Endino,
(known for his work with Nirvana, Mudhoney etc) for mixing, and finally to
influential punk artist Raymond Pettibon for album art.
