Okay so the title lies, this has been around for a few weeks. And, the website at which it is available also uses the phrase ‘First Listen,’ and thus spits on the one ounce of originality that I thought this blog contained. Anyway, The Antlers! They’re a freakishly talented band, complete with ghostly vocals and spine-chilling ambience, and despite those three eerily supernatural adjectives the music that they create screams of importance. You can stream their new album, Burst Apart, here.
Also, their first major album, Hospice, can be streamed here, and the one before that can be streamed here. What better way to support all that selfless streaming goodness than by buying Burst Apart, which can be done here.
