The Antlers' new album "In The Attic of The Universe" is now available to download for FREE at http://www.antlersmusic.com.
At only 21 years old, this is Peter Silberman's 5th release, though only his second under The Antlers moniker. After moving to Manhattan last year, he set up a cramped, make-shift recording studio in his apartment and set to work on what would become The Antlers' first proper LP, "Uprooted", a different sort of take on the transplant album, exploring claustrophobia and sleepwalking against a fuzz-folk backdrop.
He spent 2006 performing throughout his new home in support of the album, and in the fall of 2006, sprawled his equipment on the floor and set to work on "In The Attic of The Universe", a concept-EP in which he ups the instrumentation from the acoustic guitar that dominated "Uprooted", introducing a full rhythm section, moog, accordion, and piano (both traditional and toy) and a host of others, while parts of the album were recorded outside the farmhouse he grew up on with an old Sony shoebox tape-recorder. The result is a sound revolving around swelling ambience and climactic explosions in the vein of The Arcade Fire and Sigur Ros, alongside Silberman's voice, a sort of cross between Jeff Mangum and Jeff Buckley.

Surely this must be part of the Black Deer Antler Kids movement, which recently replaced the Blue Jesus Buffalo Fish craze. They have a song simply titled "Bear", which clearly anticipated the current rush of Black Ghost Wolf Bear bands. Which webkinz animal are you going to name your next band? Good luck. Animal Collective, already upped the ante. Want to be a hit? Start booking shows at the Zoo.

I already have had a band called "Bearwolf the Wolfbear Band" for over a year. So there.

This is not a joke.

And as a matter of fact, I did see an Antlers tour poster that just had a picture of a bear on it. The bear didn't have Antlers for some reason. Can someone who's really smart and not into "indie" music at all write a treatise on fake/attempted animism in contemporary band names???

Please.
