We've been loving Crystal Antlers' sophomore set Two-Way Mirror, to death (read all about it here), so we're excited to hear that the Long Beach band is touring with Wu Lyf this fall. (Incidentally, Ikey Owens of Free Moral Agents produced the album.)
Jonny Bell, chimney sweep by day, Crystal Antlers frontman by night, sent out a missive about what's next for them:
Since completing the recording we've been dealing with a mountain of DIY manufacturing tasks, setting up distribution deals and putting together a small team to help us get the word out. It's been a tough and costly learning experience releasing it on this scale by ourselves, but for the knowledge we've gained, it was well worth it.
We've assembled everything by hand and silkscreened the covers. On our website we offer a special package that includes a tote bag, a bonus 10" LP called Son of The Mirror, a lapel pin and cd's of both records. The vinyl is clear and the covers that come with the album in the special pack are made of blue paper.
You can buy the album directly from the band here: www.crystalantlers.com or you can get it off iTunes here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/two-way-mirror/id447461531.
