When I saw the name of the newest Antlers song, I prayed that it would be awesome. The reason being - I felt an instant connection to the track, even before listening to it. For the longest time, I had dreams that my teeth would fall out. It got so bad that I’d have a dream within a dream of my teeth falling out – yeah, Inception shit. Anyway, New York’s Antlers’ latest single is not only right up my alley in its name, but in its lo-fi, indie-rock nature. To me, Every Night I Dream My Teeth Are Falling Out is better than the band’s critically acclaimed, 2010 release Hospice. Sure, the album was good, I’ll agree with that. It’s just; sometimes I feel parts were a little too experimental for me, and felt rather boring. Other parts made me feel like I was about to have a panic attack. It’s not like the band has abandoned the minimalistic, non-traditional style that made Hospice so haunting, however. The new track still maintains the anxiety-driven, bi-polar feel of the band’s older material. Its folk-tinged beginning violently cascades into layers of guitars, looped vocals and effects in a climax of indie-rock goodness. More, please.
Antlers' new album, Burst Apart, drops May 10 on Frenchkiss Records.
