The Antlers have this most amazing new album, titled “Hospice. It is about a guy that is in love with a girl who is dying of cancer. Sometimes it is more complicated to be the one who is healthy, cause the sick one is simply trying to hang on and survive, and can`t deal with day to day chores, pleasures and feelings. It is very hard to feel your love is dying, and her love to you, is dying too. This album, as the title suggests, is very hard to swallow, long slow songs that build up slowly, repetitive with dreamy keyboard lines, pads, organs, nothing too pretty as far as production goes, no fancy tweaking. It is very hard for me to write about the subject and everything that it makes me feel, but I have been walking with it in my head for some time now, cant find the right words, just being drawn to it.
Peter Silberman moved to Brooklyn and stayed at his apartment for more than a year and wrote this beautiful masterpiece.
The Antlers’ 2009 album, Hospice, was recently named “Best Album of 2009 So Far” by NPR. Robin Hilton says, “Frontman Peter Silberman is only 23, but has produced one of the most beautiful and moving works I’ve heard in a long, long time. Just astonishing.”
Up until now, Peter Silberman was releasing his material independently
Only recently, the band has signed with Frenchkiss Records and Hospice will be re-released this August with wider distribution.
It is one of the best albums that I have heard in a long time. I like what Peter said in an interview when he was asked if he was pleased with the result of Hospice. I know I would have retired after making an album like this
“…I think by the time the record was done, it was really done. There was nothing left to write and nothing left to record or fix. It had reached the point where I knew it was going to start making less and less sense the longer the process went on, so when it was completed, I was ready. I don’t think I’ve ever spent so much time and energy on anything in my life. It’s the album I wanted to make”…..
Go and buy this. It is a must
I got this demo tape from A.N`s sister. She`s a very good friend of mine. He was diagnosed Schizophrenic few years ago, and is seriously ill. What keeps him alive and going, is his love for music. I got this tape and couldn’t stop playing this song, a great, mature, sad sad song that he wrote, sang and played guitar on. He is not a singer, but sings with a lot of personality and great feel. He is saying, it is very hard to go through life and disappoint everyone around you, not to be able to keep your promises, meaning, to fuck up. My heart goes to this guy and I really thank him for the right to listen and review this song.
