Don’t lie, given how excited you were to hear the follow up to The Antlers sadcore quasi-classic ‘Hospice’, their 2011 follow up ‘Burst Apart’ sounded remarkably like the audio equivalent of somebody trashing a house you spent two years making your home. Sure, it might have gotten inexplicably positive reviews but you know as well as I do, it was something of a clunker. Thankfully, time has kept up its promise of forward momentum and brought with it the gift of new Antlers material in the form of an EP entitled ‘Undersea’. The following two tracks are from that release, and cover everything from pensive slide guitars in Drift Dive to the through atmospheric, vaguely jazzy exploits of Crest. You can hear them via the corresponding blue links below.
Undersea is due to arrive on the 24th of July.
