The Antlers: TAS In Session

The Antlers first started making real traction in 2009 when they released their third full-length album, Hospice. As the title suggests, that record dealt with some pretty weighty subject matter, but it was presented in such a moving way that it was impossible not to get swept away by it. Since then, the Brooklyn trio has continued to hone their craft of creating stirring sonic landscapes. The Antlers' latest release, Familiars, is a thoughtful and deliberately-paced collection of songs that instills calmness and warmth. Watch videos of The Antlers during their recent visit to Studio A and listen to the entire session now in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE on Friday, June 25, at 11a.m., EDT, also streaming online.
