The Daily Choice: Crystal Antlers – Until The Sun Dies (Part 2)
You know, I’m pretty sure that I’m coming in almost dead last on recognizing just how amazing Crystal Antlers are. I’ve been doing a bit of research on this ball of psych-noise-guitar-riffing madness and have found more information about an upcoming full length, than the EP I’m dredging this track from. Nonetheless, my good friend Whiskey Pete played this for me a few drunken weekends a go, and I actually believe the left side of my brain melted a bit. Since hearing this track, it’s been difficult for me to throw with my left hand, my left eye has been wetly blinking, and words starting with ‘z’ and ‘q’ are slurred and drooly.
Crystal Antlers I blame you.
What I’m try to get at here is that this song is a mind fuck. A blast of concentrated distortion fueled psychedelia that will leave you slack jawed, pawing blindly in the searing brightness of rock and roll.
Crystal Antlers are coming to Seattle, soon, but sadly as an opening act for careening dick smacks Cold War Kids. This does not make me happy.
