Crystal Antlers push album release date back
DIY punk outfit Crystal Antlers are unleashing their long-awaited sophomore LP Two Way Mirror on 1st August. They first caught our attention in 2007 when they self-released a handful of EPs exploded onto the indie music scene with a handful of other similarly-named bands (Crystal Castles, Crystal Fighters, Crystal Stilts, etc. etc.). Crystal Antlers set themselves apart, though, for whole-heartedly embracing the HXC mentality; just look at this video of them playing a gig in a basement of a bookstore - WILD.
The Crystal Antlers released their first album Tentacles in 2009; since then they've taken on a new member, organist Cora Foxx, and have been working on the new record for over a year now. It's set to be a good'un, as they've worked with legendary producer Jack Endino, known for his work with Nirvana, and artist Raymond Pettibon designed the album artwork. We have to wait a month or so until the album is released, so in the meantime why not watch the video for their new single, 'Summer Solstice':
Today's Mix/Cover/Live includes Patti Smith, Sharon Van Etten and Crystal Fighters. [read more]
