The Antlers (2012)
New york City, NY
Evolving from Peter Silberman's bedroom recordings to a fully realized band, for Brooklyn-based the Antlers, what started out as a solo lo-fi folk project progressed quickly into a colossal-sounding chamber pop group. After self-recording a handful of albums in a kamikaze fashion -- for instance, The February Tape (recorded in a bathtub in an hour). Silberman set forth to record his opus, Hospice, in July of 2007. Hospice started out as another solo project before Silberman started incorporating other musicians, including drummer Michael Lerner and multi-instrumentalist Darby Cicci.
