The Antlers – Hospice

The Antlers – Hospice

Hospice album cover

It’s a dreamy record too, taking influences from ambient and shoegaze albums to separate itself from the usual indie-rock norm; there’s as much Tim Hecker here as there is Win Butler. Hospice is named such for a reason: the dreamy soundscapes and swells of “Thirteen” and others induce the kind of wistful images that you’d imagine when terminally ill, or terminally heartbroken.

  • I don’t remember having listened to this album before, but it was on my hard drive, so I must have. It’s epic, in every hackneyed sense of the word. The crescendos are sublime. Listen to this if you want a ride.
