The Antlers – On The Roof

Won’t feel it now until there’ll be a set of Antlers on the roof, if you still believe in that sort of thing. Yes, that is quite possibly the worst lead in to a song but the near hallucinogenic quality of ‘On The Roof’ makes you do things you may later regret. Peter Silberman recorded the ‘In The Attic Of The Universe’ EP as cheaply as he could within the confines of his New York apartment. His gift is that the music sounds like it is as lushly produced as a Sigur Ros dreamscape. Vocally you’ll hear Jeff Buckley but the atmosphere is patently Silberman’s, a slow melancholic march to the city of sadness. The Antlers recently signed to Fall Records but hopefully the DIY aesthetic that has served Silberman’s 5 previous works so well won’t be lost. KD
