Crystle Antlers Live @ Mess With Texas 3
At SXSW, of the thousands of bands blogged about and hyped, it is expected to hate a few of them. For me, that overhyped band was Crystal Antlers. Not that they were terrible. The six-piece were definitely interesting. The six-piece are extremely tight and really know how to utilize each member to make their sound. Unfortunately, that sound is very dull and uncaptivating. How on earth is prog influenced guitar music the next big thing? Ok, it’s not like I had to experience a Mars Volta concert, but the guitar was too drawn out, the vocals were the same, and matched the annoyance. This is simply blog buzz done bad.
