The Antlers are all set to follow up one of 2009’s best albums, Hospice, and I am super excited!
I’ve been a fan of these Brooklyn indie rockers for quite awhile now, but after listening to Hospice, they became a real favorite of mine. NPR describes it best, “Frontman Peter Silberman is only 23, but has produced one of the most beautiful and moving works I’ve heard in a long, long time. Just astonishing.” If you’ve haven’t listened to Hospice uninterrupted and in it’s entirety…I pity you.
The new album, Burst Apart, won’t be released until May 10 (via Frenchkiss), but on March 17th, they’ll perform at NPR’s SXSW Showcase at the Parish and the performance will be broadcast live as part NPR’s First Listen series.
