Burst Apart is giving me shivers already. Today is going to be a brilliant day.
omg sean, i love it so much. i'm sat here in the library getting so excited over it and cannot wait for everyone else to get out of bed and hear this.
The new Fleet Foxes album, from someone who found their debut pretty good but pretty dull at the same time, is surprisingly great
This morning thanks to this news. Cheers for the heads up.
I have a sedload of uni work today, so much that even music would be a distraction, so only something that made me exceptionally excited would make me buckle. This may be that thing....but i'll hold
if it helps, the Antlers playing keeps crashing for me...
I can officially declare it absolutely cracking. But now I discover their Heaven gig with Braids is the night before my exam. This degree better be fucking worth it.
Sounds pretty good so far. Leaps and bounds better than their debut; much less melodramatic. This guy's really a pretty good vocalist, and he gets a chance to shine here.
than it's absurdly brilliant.
Silberman did two solo albums before that, but also under the name The Antlers.
I'm not even sure if it's fair or right to make a comparison, it's a whole different kind of project.
But I'd say it's a sort of side-step - on the first few listens it's at least as good as Hospice (an album which I think is fantastic). To me it shows that all the emotion which was put across in that record wasn't ever concealing, or standing in place of, anything else which makes a brilliant album. They've pulled it out the bag - as long as you weren't expecting another Hospice (which you would have been foolish to do) I can't see how this album could disappoint.
