Jun 18, 2014Against all odds, they’ve become one of the most interesting indie rock bands working, and the stately beauty of Familiars is the latest satisfying effort from a band that continues to reward those listeners who give them the attention their elegant, secretly weird music deserves.

Jun 24, 2014The Antlers have slowly creeped under the radar with nothing but brilliant, original music. It's just a matter of time before they get the credit they deserve. No one should expect to get another Hospice but they seem to grow in ideas and originality as they grow older as a band. I consider them the Radiohead of American music, and not just because they both have brilliant lead singers that sing through their bones on each note. They are quite unique and I love everything they have put out to this point and I truly think they are easily one of the best bands in the world at the moment, even if the world doesn't know it yet. Their brilliance is unparalleled in almost everything they have made to this point. I hope for even better going forward and I hope their brilliance spreads world wide as well.… Expand
Jul 13, 2014It's not the kind of music i expected from the Antlers, but it nonetheless manages to be better than their two previous beautiful albums ("Hospice" and "Burst Apart"). The music is full of subtle touches that converge together to create this wonderful serene mood. The lyrics and vocals are great as well.
I truly like this band and wish them the best of luck in their future.… Expand
Jun 19, 2014Another great album from the Antlers... more of a following from Burst Apart than Hospice but very well executed and subtle music arrangements as well as the songwriting.
I do believe they are an under-rated band and they deverve much more success. The introduction Palace is a gem by itself !
Aug 2, 2014As charmingly and deliciously created and performed as the album grows further and further, the consistency and stability the work projects is sometimes diminished by excessively steady and slow structures that end up being a bit boring or tedious. Despite saying that if it had lasted 35 minutes instead of 53 it would have been quite tastier and prettier, the combination of exquisite trumpets, aesthetic and profound lyrics and Silberman‘s astonishing voice denotes a purely talented band that has made a nostalgic and thrilling job (all over again).… Expand
