In our many posts about The Antlers, we have never spoken about the band’s technical prowess. The new album, Burst Apart, was produced by the band, but the lion’s share of the studio and tech work was done by keyboardist Darby Cicci. At Wellmont Theatre on Monday night, it was a question in my mind as to whether the band’s sound could fill such a cavernous theatre, but from the very outset The Antlers did just that. As they opened with perhaps the most aggressive song from Burst Apart “Parentheses”, Michael Lerner’s well-mic’d bass drum and the strong dual guitar work of Peter Silberman and Tim Mislock produced a wall of sound, but it was Darby’s keys and effects that provided both the bottom end and the depth to the booming sound. The set continued in the same vein, with six new songs of the seven played, supplemented by an emotional version of “Atrophy” from Hospice. The Antlers return to the NYC area on December 10, with a newly announced date at Webster Hall.

We recorded this set in the same manner and location as the EITS set, and the sound quality is equally rich. Enjoy!
