How did you celebrate July 4th? On a rooftop BBQ listening to our summer mix? Maybe you stayed in and watched old episodes of Hoarders on Roku? Maybe I stayed in and did that. There is no way to know. But all across this great country we do know there were fireworks to be see… More »

New York just became the 6th largest state to approve same-sex marriage. Yes! The Senate bill passed 33-to-29, Governor Cuomo signed the measure shortly after, and the law goes into effect in 30 days. A historic night to be sure, one probably best not spent in front of a laptop. Too late. But in case… More »

The Antlers – “Director (Dave Harrington Remix)”

Last year, the grand, graceful, downcast Brooklyn band the Antlers released their album Familiars. Dave Harrington used to be half of the planetarium-core duo Darkside with Nicolas Jaar, which means he knows a few things about being grand and graceful and downcast. And now Harrington has remixed the Antlers’ Familiars song “Director,” turning it into… More »

Tinariwen – “Toumast Tincha (The Antlers Remix)”

Tonight, Anti- labelmates Daniel Lanois, the Antlers, Tinariwen, and Lonney Holley will play a big show that they’ve called Anti-Thesis at Brooklyn’s Masonic Temple. In advance of the event, Lanois remixed the Antlers’ “Doppelganger.” And now Antlers frontman Peter Silberman has taken on “Toumast Tincha,” a recent single from the badass Toureg desert-blues band Tinariwen.

The Antlers – “Doppelganger (Daniel Lanois Anti-Thesis Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Legendary producer Daniel Lanois and esteemed indie-rockers the Antlers have a show together next month at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. It’s called Anti-Thesis, a reference to their shared record label, Anti-, and it also features labelmates Tinariwen and Lonnie Holley. That’s the poster for it up top. To mark the occasion, Lanois — whose new… More »

The Antlers – “Refuge” Video

The Antlers’ videos for songs from their latest album, Familiars, have been pointedly minimalist. The visuals for “Palace” consisted of fuzzy shots of house interiors, “Hotel” at least featured some out-of-focus band members, and the clip for “Refuge” is their most abstract yet. Slow-moving wisps of smoke fill the screen and melt into different shape… More »

Stream The Antlers Familiars

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… More »

The Antlers – “Hotel” Video

The Antlers’ new album Familiars is a couple of weeks away from release, and they’ve already shared a dark, murky video for one of its songs, “Palace.” Today, they’ve got another one, for the expansive single “Hotel.” Derrick Belcham directed this one, which shows the band members walking expressionless through dusty, out-of-focus corridors. Watch it… More »

The Antlers – “Hotel”

Slow-swelling Brooklyn indie trio the Antlers will unleash the new album Familiars next month, and after sharing a video for the opening track “Palace,” they’ve let the world hear a second track from the album. “Hotel,” the latest, is a moody churn that stays very much within the rainy-day vibe of “Palace.” It’s got lot… More »

The Antlers – “Palace” Video & Familiars Details

Last week, Brooklyn epic-indie craftsmen the Antlers teased us with a couple of minutes of new music, but they didn’t wait too long to let us know what’s up. In a couple of months, the band will release their first proper full-length since 2011’s Burst Apart. It’s called Familiars, and the band produced and engineered… More »

The Antlers Tease New Music On YouTube

The Antlers are being all mysterious. We haven’t heard much out of the Brooklyn-based band since late 2012, but earlier today they tweeted a link to a short YouTube video with no explanation or comment. More »

School Of Night – “Fire Escape”

The cover of School Of Night’s upcoming EP — that church, old and faded on the top, but placed on a hyperreal patch of greener-than-green grass — is a good signifier of the music inside: synthetic, but not without a homespun sense of care. Darby Cicci (also of the Antlers) showed his solo project’s shar… More »

School Of Night – “Lying” (Stereogum Premiere)

Darby Cicci is best known as a member of Brooklyn etherealists the Antlers, in which he contributes a legion of musical components including keyboards, bass, trumpet, banjo, organ, and more. So, with all those tricks up his sleeve, he is putting out his own solo work under the name School Of Night. He’ll release a… More »

PVT – “Nightfall (The Antlers Remix)”

BTW emeriti PVT recently released their fourth studio album Homosapien, which included the droning track “Nightfall.” Here, Brooklyn band the Antlers give the Aussie trio’s track a kind of narcotic-addled sheen, taking their current underwater-inspired output and rubbing it all over the original. Check it out below. More »

Parenthetical Girls – “Curtains (The Antlers Remix)”

Last year the skewed-pop group Parenthetical Girls released the airy single Curtains, registering as what the Cars’ “Drive” was produced by Brian Eno. Fellow off-kilter beauty merchants the Antlers got their hands on it for a remix, and their slightly more populist streak shines in this version, which wrangles the female vocal from the original’… More »

Here’s A Cello Remix Of The Antlers’ “No Windows”

As a thank you to fans, the Antlers just posted a pretty new version of Burst Apart’s “No Windows” by Brent Arnold, a friend of theirs who took Peter Silberman’s vocal stems and set them to string arrangements he “recorded in a library in a castle in Burgundy.” For fans of classical arrangements, Peter Silberman’… More »

The Antlers – “Crest” (Tricky Remix)

The first two albums from Bristol trip-hop pioneer Tricky sounded absolutely revolutionary back in the mid-’90s, but after years of diminishing returns (and after being exploded in The Fifth Element), he disappeared into the pop-culture wilderness for a few years. In recent weeks, though, Tricky has shown up in a couple of unexpected places. Last… More »

The Antlers, Port St. Willow @ Glasslands, Williamsburg 7/30/12

The westernmost block of Williamsburg, between S. 1st and S. 2nd, is coming off a riotous week, largely thanks to the DIY space located at (and named) 285 Kent Ave: Trash Talk and Odd Future one night, Grimes and A$AP Rocky just a few after, shirtlessness throughout. So let last night’s show at the venue… More »

The Antlers – “Crest”

A day after the Antlers teased their forthcoming Undersea EP with the lush “Drift Dive,” they unleashed another cut called “Crest” this morning. It’s a somewhat glitchy, sample-laden affair that explores similar sonic territory as “Drift Dive.” Remember the underwater dystopia from the first BioShock game? “Crest” would be a perfect soundtrack to the pensive… More »

The Antlers – “Drift Dive”

Earlier this month, Brooklyn indie rockers the Antlers announced a new EP called Undersea, and today, the leadoff cut from that release has surfaced (pun intended). It’s called “Drift Dive,” and it’s a slow-building, slide guitar-laden ode, replete with a horn section and distorted Peter Silberman vocals. It sounds like it’s underwater, which is probably… More »

Antlers Undersea Details

In a boomtime for aquarian concepts in the indie sphere (see also: DIIV f/k/a/ Dive; Lemonade’s Diver LP and its glorious “Neptune” single; Azealia and mermaids; seapunk!), the Antlers are bang on trend with Undersea, the title for their just-announced forthcoming release. It’s slated for July 24th and is due via Anti-, representing a shift… More »
