Crystal Antlers @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Crystal Antlers

"The [Crystal] Antlers's new Two-Way Mirror (Recreation Ltd.) offers more proof of a band that could aim for tight songwriting if they pleased, but chose to do otherwise. The whiny organ in "Way Out" and the skronky sax in "Always Afraid" are more about mood and texture than about conventionally handsome sounds. At the same time, Antlers' music is growing more sonorous and confident with experience: "Summer Solstice" has a smart, relatively clean melody, and "Jules' Story" moves with the inexorability of a tide." [Boston Phoenix]

Long Beach band the Crystal Antlers, who played House of Vans in Brooklyn over the summer, are on tour with WU LYF and warmed up the crowd in an energetic way last night at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. If you missed it, Crystal Antlers play a show of their own at Pianos in Manhattan tonight (11/9) with the Wooden Sky who are in from Ontario.

All tour dates, some songs, and more pictures from their opening set in Brooklyn last night, below...
