In case you haven’t heard, Peter Silberman of The Antlers, a band I love dearly, is fast at work preparing a debut solo album for us, Impermanence, due to arrive February 24th on Transgressive. In the meantime, he’s unleashed a music video constructed out of vintage historical footage for album single New York. New York itself is an understated beauty, a tranquil lullaby etched with delicate melancholy. Silberman’s forthcoming album is a musical document of his experience with a hearing impairment that led him to leave Brooklyn for a secluded setting in upstate New York. It feels as if we’re taking that journey alongside him as he serenades us with his sparse, minimalist song. You can pre-order Impermanence digitally from iTunes or  physically, here.

Hooray! The Antlers debuted another new tune today on SPIN! A month ago, they announced their return with first single Palace, off an upcoming new album titled Familiars, out June 17. As a pretty devoted fan of the post-rock-y indie rock band, I was absolutely thrilled at their return. Hotel, like Palace, seems to place their sound somewhere smack in between last albums Hospice and Burst Apart, two very different releases with very varying sounds, one more folksy, one incredibly dreamy. Of course, I super dig the brass on this too, as I always do. I’ve loved The Antlers on both of those prior albums, despite the disparity, and the combo of the two on these tracks, with the addition of Peter Silberman’s always gorgeous vocals, results in something quite blissful indeed. Revisit the video for Palace below.

OFFICIAL VID: The Antlers – Palace

April 1, 2014

Indeed, I was a happy camper this morning with all the fantastic new tunes by bands and musicians I love free flowing through my ears. Please, welcome back The Antlers with me. Palace is the first single off forthcoming album Familiars, out June 17 on Anti-. I can’t begin to describe how blissful it is to hear Peter Silberman’s immaculate vocals again. Palace is a serene, dreamy, horn filled beauty that seems to lie somewhere in between the band’s sound on 2009 conceptual album Hospice and 2011 album Burst Apart, both of which I loved so much. I’ve already listened to this tune countless times today, and each time I return to it, I just want to sigh and melt. Sublime, dreamy, post-rock leaning, folk tinged pop…. Ahhhh… Thank you once again, The Antlers.

Continuing with the dope textured soundscapes with this woozy remix of British band Blaenavon’s Wunderkind by Darby from The Antlers, which premiered on Rolling Stone. If you recall, I was immensely taken by Blaenavon and their indie rock when I first stumbled upon them over the summer. They’ve since released their EP Koso on Transgressive. Wunderkind is off that EP, and The Antler’s remix is absolutely intoxicating. Listen to the beautiful Wild Beasts and Foals-esque original track below.

Tricky’s version of The Antler’s Parenthesis

June 7, 2013

Whoa, what’s going on, here? This is pretty sick! English producer Tricky redid The Antlers’ Burst Apart standout Parenthesis and made it into this dark, twisted, heavy, trip hoppy track! I don’t know about you, but I like it, plus it makes me realize how much I miss The Antlers, whom I love very much and have caught live a number of times. The track is off Tricky’s new album False Idols.

Nothing Matters featuring Nneka is the lead single off the album, and it’s pretty good too. Here’s the official video:

The Antlers remix Indians

April 12, 2013

This is absolutely dreamy and beautiful. One of my favorite dream pop/post-rock bands, The Antlers, or rather band member Darby specifically, remixed amazing, talented Indians’ song Lips Lips Lips. The track is off Indians debut album Somewhere Else, which is an epic, complex journey. There were certainly moments in the album that did remind me of The Antlers already, as well as Bon Iver, Youth Lagoon, and countless other artists and bands I love. Add in Darby’s touch and the song is even more foggy and magical.
