The Antlers - Rolled Together

The Antlers

Burst Apart

Frenchkiss/Transgressive; 2011

The Antlers was the intimate solo project of Pete Silberman and has now evolved into something beyond anything he thought  possible. His debut, Hospice,  was as much of a success as it was poignant and powerful. Here on "Rolled Together", crystalline guitar chimes over an attenuated organ. Silberman's haunting falsetto prefaces the song's central chorus, then all the sonic elements strike and and leave as quickly as they came. The Sigur Ros influences however, are impossible to ignore. Nevertheless, the track is amazing.
