Many of the articles include childhood or teenage photos of the musicians interviewed.

By the third day of SXSW the lack of sleep was really catching up to us. As with the day before, we had to wake up early again to conduct a photo-shoot (three of them in fact), which again left no time for day parties. By the time the evening rolled around we were already burnt out, but still game to check out more bands. Alas, Friday offered little other than underwhelming sets, including ones by a shy Swedish duo and a surprisingly dark hyped Brooklyn band. More

The Antlers

Not awake yet

Nov 19, 2012

In 2011 The Antlers' Burst Apart was one of the indie records to name drop. It was an outpouring of emotion so expressive and gut-wrenchingly gorgeous that it exposed the sensitive underbelly of a thousand hipsters' collective psyche as well as resonating with the 21st century's spiritual beatniks. On both sides of the Atlantic there was effusive praise across the world of music press. More

For those of us expecting that The Antlers would continue on the path of their 2012 Undersea EP, a drawn-out batch of psychedelia, Familiars is an unexpected turn. More

Jul 27, 2012

After the cold sterility of Hospice and the forlorn but livelier Burst Apart, The Antlers deliver a four-song EP that occupies an entirely new space. The tension that held those full-lengths together and made them so compelling is absent from Undersea, but surprisingly, the meditative flow of the music feels complete, though not quite as intriguing.

Hospice was a strange record. The first record featuring The Antlers in their current, trio alignment seemed to come onto the scene fully formed. And yet Burst Apart manages to be just as surprising without suffering the major lulls that marred Hospice. More

While it may not be the only way, one manner in which great songs are created is necessity. In other words, the songwriter is compelled to write a song or songs, not by their record company or market forces, but inspired by a new love or heartbreak, or sometimes tragedy. Peter Silberman's songs that populate The Antler's Hospice are just such a batch.
