The Antlers will be at Neumos on May 5 with Phantogram.
The Antlers are a Brooklyn-based trio founded and fronted by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Peter Silberman. Their music is sometimes peaceful, sometimes terrifying, and always dynamic and complex. Last year's Hospice , a concept album about a dying bone cancer victim, was a favorite of basically every music blog on the Web.
Silberman & co. just kicked off a tour with Barsuk's Phantogram. They'll be at Neumos on May 5 - I'll be there and am way stoked about seeing both bands. In the meantime, check out the brand-new, super-dramatic, sepia-toned video for "Sylvia" here, and (for free) download New York Hospitals, Silberman's 2008 EP where the track first appeared.
