In early 2010, following the release of their first full-length album and the completion of nine US and European tours, Crystal Antlers finally settled down in the small Mexican farming town of La Punta Banda—it was there that the bulk of what would become Two-Way Mirror was born. After the drastic downsizing of their label, the legendary Touch and Go Records, the band was ready to take a moment and begin to bridge the gap into new territory. Beginning with their first two self-releases - Tapes Volume #1 Tentacles Era and Little Sister/Dead Horses7-inch single -  following their break with TG, the band began exploring new pathways and genres, touching on elements of avant-garde pop, surf rock, 1970’s folk, and grunge. Combined with their constantly evolving experimental, punk, noise & psychedelia, and addition/influence newest band member, organist Cora Foxx, Crystal Antlers’ second full length is a sound uniquely their own.

The band began recording Two-Way Mirror in September 2010 at the Compound studio in their hometown of Long Beach, California. Returning behind the mixing board were producer Ikey Owens and engineers Athony Arvizu & Jeff Lewis—the recording team behind Crystal Antlers seminal debut, EP. The production of Two-Way Mirror encompasses an enormous spectrum of sonic textures dynamically flowing from song to song with all of the intensity the band has come to be known for. Songs like Summer Solstice” and “Fortune Telling” display a sense of depth and clarity only scarcely seen before  from the band, while the songs “Sun-Bleached,” “Way Out,” and “Knee Deep” are an intimate look into the world of Crystal Antlers home recordings.
 
Acclaimed producer/mixer Jack Endino, (known for his work with Nirvana, Mudhoney etc) presided over mixing duties and finally, influential punk artist Raymond Pettibon over album art.
 
Two-Way Mirror is truly the most defiant & ambitious work yet from Crystal Antlers, reaching far beyond even their own boundaries of sound & classification.
