The Antlers

“Anchored by Michael Lerner‘s drumming, the group used a familiar, slow-building approach, eventually making full use of loud/soft dynamics. Initially hushed songs metamorphosed into gripping, intensely executed exercises in rock catharsis. The haunting “Kettering” was one example, a suitably brooding number off Hospice, the Antlers’ debut album (essentially a solo Silberman song cycle concerning a terminally ill patient’s drawn-out death).

Now a full band, the Antlers still deal on their new album with dark themes, albeit more generalized. “Putting the Dog to Sleep,” which closed out their regular set at [Philadelphia’s First Unitarian Church] (and concludes Burst Apart), makes clever use of mournful metaphor over a lilting, classic pop-song beat.” [Philadelphia Inquirer]

Not long after performing their new album in its entirety for free at Knitting Factory (on 5/5), The Antlers brought their tour with Little Scream back home to NYC for sold out shows at both Music Hall of Williamsburg (5/19) and Bowery Ballroom (5/20). The Antlers played most of the new album and threw in a few cuts off Hospice too at the recent shows. The full set list, the rest of their tour dates (the next one is Sasquatch) and more pictures from the MHOW show, below…
