Put on the Playlist: The Antlers

the antlers first got on my radar when i am fuel, you are friends posted their great cover of nothing matters when we’re dancing by the magnetic fields back in november.

but now the brooklyn band is hitting the road, promoting Hospice which they are releasing on March 3rd. their lyrics are slightly dark the way i like and the semi-shoegazy indie sound is really money. i really like the way their song Bear’s sound starts off small, builds for the chorus but comes back down for the second verse – and then comes back with the full band for the climax. peter, from the band has graciously allowed me to share the song here on the blog – so definitely check it out below.

if you like the sound – be sure to head over to their website where they have a bunch more music shared and also their mypace page. on their tour they’re going to be swinging through DC and hitting up one of my favorite venues – the cat – on march 11th – so i’m pretty excited to also check them out live.

but without any further adieu, here is Bear – so check it out:
