Album Review: The Antlers - 'Burst Apart'
The sonic progression that needed to happen
A record that’s every bit the sonic departure it had to be, it nevertheless recalls its forebear’s themes, seeing matters of the heart from a more reflective stance. Those seeking to find Silberman still wallowing in grief may be disappointed by ‘No Widow’’s wistful twilight or ‘Rolled Together’’s sleek elegance, yet it’s these lighter tones with which The Antlers prove their opulent progression.
