Mehan Jayasuriya raved about Crystal Antlers debut EP last year giving it an 8 and described the California band as “a punk band only in the loosest sense of that term; the band often plays loud, hard and fast, though its songs incorporate elements from such disparate genres as psych, garage, and prog. They’ve got a killer rhythm section that figures prominently in the mix, they’re not afraid to solo or wander off on psychedelic tangents, their vocalist alternates between a hoarse scream and a bluesy wail and when they rock out—which is often—they fire on all cylinders.”


Their full length, Tentacles, releases on Touch and Go on April 7th in North America and April 6th in the UK. They recently stopped by Fuel TV to play for The Daily Habit.

Psychedelia has influenced so many things in 2009 -- whether the band is labeled freak-folk, psych-pop, or garage psychedelia to name a few -- that the creative approach to songwriting has influenced and been adopted by so many genres that barely any independent label has remained untouched by its reaches.
