Biography

Active: 2000s-2010s
Country Of origin: United States of America
Group Members: Jonny Bell

Long Beach, California's Crystal Antlers began turning heads in 2008 with their recording debut, EP, a release that was produced by Ikie Owens (known for his work with the Mars Volta) and noted for its blend of psychedelic, garage, and prog rock sounds. Jonny Bell (bass, vocals, woodwinds), Andrew King (guitar, organ), Victor Rodriguez (organ), Kevin Stuart (drums), and Damian Edwards (percussion) soon developed a reputation for eccentric live shows and earned comparisons to Comets on Fire and Les Savy Fav. The group made a number of appearances on the 2008 F Yeah Tour and signed with Touch & Go Records in August of that year. By 2009, talk of a new full-length began circulating, and in April, Tentacles was released. That album would be the last on Touch & Go before the label shut down in 2009, and Crystal Antlers were left to release their follow-up, Two-Way Mirror, on their own Recreation Ltd in July of 2011 with Cora Foxx replacing Rodriguez. Their third full-length, Nothing Is Real, showcased the band as a trio without Foxx; it was released by Innovative Leisure in the fall of 2013. ~ Katherine Fulton~ Rovi
