The Antlers are currently experiencing that in-between-albums and between-tours lull that bands enjoy after working non-stop for years in row. The period usually includes writing in the studio, solo projects and unfortunately for fans, a dearth of shows. Last Wednesday, it was the celebration of the 5th anniversary of the eclectic and groundbreaking club Le Poisson Rouge that brought the band out to play a sold out one-off show. The band’s singer and guitarist Peter Silberman at one time worked at LPR before the Antlers became his full-time vocation, and in fact the first listening party for the original self-release of Hospice took place at the club. Several years hence, the band now has two more releases to their name — enough material to play a full 90 minute show virtually without pause. The setlist was a democratic selection from each of the recent releases, including 3 of the 4 songs from last year’s Undersea EP, about half of Burst Apart, and some prime material from Hospice. We are streaming “Wake”, a powerful version that ended the main set.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards in back of the room mixed with a superb stereo soundboard feed. Due to the position of the mics, I picked up a ton of chatter and this mix is primarily the board. Enjoy!

The Antlers: December 10, 2011 Webster Hall – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

About midway through the Antlers show at Webster Hall last night, I took a stroll around the venue just to try to take it all in. The 1200+ capacity venue was literally packed to the walls — it wasn’t an easy stroll. But the take-away is that this band can fill a venue of this size on a busy Friday night when concert-goers had many other choices. In the Antlers biggest ever show in NYC, the band delivered the goods. It was a ninety-minute set limited only in length by the late-night club that Webster Hall becomes after 11 p.m. We got the feeling that they could have played another half hour. The set consisted of an interesting mix of Burst Apart and Hospice material, including some songs we had not seen in a while. “Sylvia” is streaming below, and the stand-out performance brought back a powerful song that was not played earlier in the year. The Burst Apart material has grown in length and development in the live setting, and in particular “Teeth” (also streaming below) embodies that maturation. Just a few days removed from a 30-plus show tour of Europe, the Antlers were well rehearsed but undoubtedly a little fatigued. Fortunately, the energy of a sold-out triumphant hometown return show invigorated the quartet, so that there wasn’t an ebb moment in the entire ninety-minute set.

I recorded this set with the hyper-cardioid Neumann microphones placed at the front rail of the soundboard booth in the lower balcony, and mixed with a soundboard feed. The difficult room was mixed with precision by the Antlers FOH Dan Seiders, and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

The Antlers: October 3, 2011 Wellmont Theatre – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

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!

The Antlers: May 20, 2011 Bowery Ballroom – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

The dilemma with back to back concerts from the same band is the potential for a redundant and unsatisfying repeat. After an amazing night at Music Hall on Thursday when I had too good of a time (and acidjack did all the work), I approached Friday’s show from the Antlers with a lingering hangover, fatigue, and some trepidation. At the outset of the Antlers set, the vibe in the room was radically different — MHOW’s overwhelming reefer smell and party atmosphere was replaced by a seriousness and sense of purpose. After three songs, Darby remarked that the crowd was eerily silent between songs. As with the last time was saw the Antlers at Bowery (here), the attentiveness of the crowd reflected the audience’s respect for the seriousness of the music. While Burst Apart is a significantly more “hopeful” album than its predecessor, the manner by which the Antlers go about their craft certainly creates an atmosphere of reverence for the music. While the Hospice material received the more vocal crowd reception, it is rare that a band can open a show with five new songs and continue to draw in crowd support. A slightly re-arranged setlist from Thursday’s show contained many highlights, but we’ve chosen to stream “Teeth” as it was an extremely tight performance of a song that the band will feature as the first single from the album and which will be performed on some television shows in the near future — details to follow. This show also featured the four-song encore set with three Hospice songs surrounding “Corsicana”. The continuing development of “Two” as show-stopper was evident at this show and we’re also streaming this version below. As with the three times we’ve seen the Antlers this month, “Wake” was the powerful and quite appropriate closer to this extraordinary show.

The Antlers fly west for a performance at the Sasquatch Festival next weekend before heading out on tour.

I recorded this set with the Neumann microphones mounted in the standard balcony rail position and mixed with an excellent board feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

The Antlers: May 6, 2011 Knitting Factory – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

On Friday night, The Antlers played a surprise midnight show at Knitting Factory. The show was a brooklynvegan-presented impromptu CD release show for Burst Apart (Frenchkiss), which will be released on Tuesday. The Antlers treated their fans who missed SXSW to a encore of the show they presented in March — Burst Apart from start to finish. The Brooklyn crowd also got a very special bonus in superb renditions of two Hospice songs as encores, including a powerful “Wake” set closer. But the real focus of this evening was the new material. Burst Apart is perhaps the best album you will purchase this year. The album’s production is flawless and the strength of the songs are apparent from start to finish. From the opening “I Don’t Want Love” through standout tracks (and future singles) “French Exit”, “No Widows” and “Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out”, the album reaches its climax with the future song of the year, the hopeful-but-guarded “Putting the Dog to Sleep”. The live version of “Dog” (streaming below) is an affirmation and was a exclamation point for this incredible evening, as the band extended the closing section to a powerful finish.

Burst Apart can still be pre-ordered online and the special packages offer bonuses [HERE].

I recorded this set with the warmer DPA microphones set up at the soundboard area and mixed them with an excellent feed from the board. The Antlers FOH Dan did an excellent job on the mix this evening and the result is a recording with superb sound quality. Enjoy!
