Recently I’ve been listening to The Antlers ‘Burst Apart’ album and I can’t get enough of it. The Antlers are an indie rock band and the most recent album is killer. ‘Burst Apart’ is a great album to jam in the car to or even to study to. I’ve listened to every song on the CD countless times and truly enjoy the lyrics to each song. The vocals are amazing along with the rhythm and vibe of the band. The Antlers sound is made up through the use of guitar, harmonica, keyboards, percussion, and the occasional harp and trumpet.
I’d recommend this album/band to anyone! There’s nothing to not like. The Antlers have a soothing, smooth sound that many can enjoy. A few of my personal favorite songs on the ‘Burst Apart’ album include “No Widows,” “Rolled Together” and “Hounds.” This album had eleven incredible tracks on it to jam to, each unique and beautifully constructed in its own way. This is one of those CD’s you can listen to in any mood, at any place all the way through. The Antlers sound could be explained as similar to Radiohead or The Shins.
