How Independent Rockers Celebrated #IndependenceDay

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 »

Indie Rockers Respond To NY Legalizing Gay Marriage

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 Do “Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out” On Leno

The Antlers Burst Apart Premature Evaluation

Hospice, the Antlers’ breakthrough album, was a lot like the ghost that lived in its songs: beautiful, frightening, a little bit stifling. You can’t fault the band for abandoning that heaviness this time around — it must have been twice as devastating to record as it was to listen to. So, yes, Burst Apart lack… More »

Stream The Antlers Burst Apart

Down at SXSW the Antlers showcased Peter Silberman’s soaring, fortified falsetto over a new batch of songs that stepped away from Hospice’s hospital beds while remaining primed for high-end cablevision dramatics. Those songs appear on Burst Apart, the band’s second full-length out 5/10 via Frenchkiss. So far they’ve previewed the musty OK Computer production of… More »

The Antlers Soundtrack HBO’s Fall Season

“Kettering” to be exact. The song provides the emotional glue tying together HBO’s upcoming offerings, from Avatar to Boardwalk Empire. It even adds a little emotional resonance to the clip from Eastbown & Down and the boxing match previews. But I also get the feeling that this song was basically picked because Sia’s “Breathe Me“… More »

Here’s a dude covering Guided By Voices beautifully on violin.“) — comes via the Antlers, taking on everyone’s first song on guitar. More »

The xx – “Islands” Video

The video for their “VCR” had a youthful, romantic storyline, but the xx’s “Islands” strikes a different move, and a different pose, but also kind of the same pose, over and over again. You have to watch until the end to see how the choreography changes and becomes a story in itself, but it’s worth… More »
