The Antlers

"In an enthralling concert at the Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday night, playing the songs from "Hospice" to a rapt audience, the Antlers (from Brooklyn) made clear that the music was not just a vehicle for the story. It was its own molten element, moving at its own pace. Songs emerged from, and sometimes dissolved back into, stretches of abstract sound: Mr. Silberman's guitar feedback darkening like storm clouds, Darby Cicci's hissing or whooshing keyboard sounds, Michael Lerner's atmospheric cymbals, the band's loops and layers of static and effects that only gradually led into chords and rhythms. Eventually they were topped by the words." [NY Times]
Check out our 'end of 2009' interview with Peter Silberman of the Antlers, and the one with Annie of Uninhabitable Mansions, and more pictures from their December 15th show at Bowery Ballroom, below...

Am I alone in not feeling the new arrangements?
I think they jazzing up the songs too much when the appeal was how bare and honest they were.
