Brooklyn trio the Antlers have built a career from crafting slow, graceful swells of indie rock, and they’ve only moved further toward thoughtful grandeur since they came onto the map with Hospice five years ago. Familiars, the band’s new album, is frontman Peter Silberman reflecting on the death of a friend. The band produced the album themselves, and Chris Coady, the veteran indie producer who’s helped to make recent Beach House and Future Islands records sound so great, mixed it. We’ve posted the early tracks “Palace” and “Hotels,” and now the entire album is streaming at NPR.
