The Antlers in 2011

I didn’t love Burst Apart at first. I gave it a mediocre review over at No Ripcord (http://www.noripcord.com/reviews/music/antlers/burst-apart). Its something I definitely underrated. I still don’t find it as powerful as Hospice, but its a less emotionally draining listen. Its easier to get through and, while certainly not a happy album, doesn’t leave me depressed for a few hours afterwards. This post was really just meant to about their solid cover of the XX’s VCR. So here’s that.

I’d also like to mention that the new Atlas Sound record is wonderful (http://www.noripcord.com/reviews/music/atlas-sound/parallax) . Somebody already disagrees with me, but that’s okay. At least he’s not calling me a piece of shit for disagreeing with him.
