They're like a solid rock. Once you crack through all this juicy goodness comes flowing out and it's so good. All of their records are distinctive though, just like The Antlers and I love that!

I get excited about the next Antlers release because I know it's going to be a different experience, not the same old tricks.

It's got a bit of jazz going for it but its still boring as fuck.

They still have a long way to go legacy-wise, but they have a serious chance to enter the Radiohead arena of ambient alt-rock

Def excited for this.

Hate to derail this hype train here, but this comment rustled my jimmies:



"yeah but the weird thing is that even though this sounds totally different to hospice it still sounds exactly like hospice



I MEAN WHAT"



I have only listened once, BUT this is no where near the level of dynamics used in Hospice and to me, the above comment is not making sense to me. Thanks Knott, now I have to listen to BOTH albums tonight, and probably In the Attic of the Universe too.

It doesn't seriously sound "like" Hospice but to me they both feel like part of the same other-worldly patchwork, two (three, Burst Apart included) sides of the same coin.



Unlike Hospice, these songs don’t flee from under the weight of their premise or narrative. They’re loose, ambient, drifting in and out of simple structures. But Peter Silberman still sounds absolutely miles away.



It is the first time the Antlers’ desire to carve this ethereal and wispy aura has sat comfortably with the scope and context of the project. In spite of all its deserved acclaim and every lyric we can’t quote because it’s too depressing, Hospice could have been a folk-punk album. Its best songs were the more direct ones, which is not to say that the meandering sections of some songs didn’t add to the whole in a way that’s impossible to really gauge, but the distinction between gut-wrenching moments and atmospheric ones was never fully realised.

Am I the only one detecting a distinct Cure influence in some of these tracks?

This keeps growing. Honestly could end up as my favorite release all year.

Listening to all of Hospice and then I shall get my Undersea EP on. Had already heard a couple songs and I'm excited.

I know I will! I have the Together EP with songs off of Burst Apart and they're really good. That whole EP I liked.

Would I enjoy this and burst apart if I enjoyed Hospice?

Most likely, yes you would. Hospice is the most raw and emotional, but this and Burst Apart are better musically IMO.
