With all this talk of The Antlers, I remembered the other Antlers band, (who is better in my opinion), Crystal Antlers. These guys hail from Long Beach, California and play a fun brand of prog pop punk, as if that particular alliteration means anything. It’s the kind of music fit for a crazy house party, (see pic above). The band put out their debut full-length, Tentacles, in April on Touch and Go. Get the mp3, “Tentacles” below.

They’re currently on a European tour, playing some dates with HEALTH and/or Deerhunter, and will be back in LA for the F Yeah Fest, which is called the FYF Fest this year.

These Antlers are also my great LA friend Dan’s favorite band. So they are definitely worth a listen.
