Has any rock band in history been more in love with the whine of an organ than Crystal Antlers? On the SoCal six-piece's debut, Victor Rodriguez's buzzing, shrieking organ chords are pushed to the front of the mix — the heroic voice that arcs above the band's riotous guitar-bass-drums clamor. Songs like "Dust" and the bluesy "Andrew" evoke late-Sixties garage rock, but there are hints of other styles: German krautrock, Japanese noise rock and, in "Until the Sun Dies (Part One)," the free-jazz eruptions of late-period Coltrane. It's unclear what frontman Jonny Bell is caterwauling about, but it scarcely matters. The vocals are just another sound bubbling up through the thick sonic stew — the "lead singer" here is the organ.
