“Putting The Dog To Sleep” (Live On KEXP) (Video)

    KEXP had a camera crew out filming the Antlers recently, and official video of that event has been released online. This version of “Putting the Dog to Sleep” from Burst Apart was recorded at Doug Fir during MusicfestNW in Portland, Oregon. It’s a great way to experience the raw power of the band in a live setting, with Peter Silberman’s delicately strained vocals leading the group through a sparse arrangement that builds into noisier fare in its final third. That masterful grasp on tension and release is what caused Burst Apart to connect with such a vast audience, and clips like this are only likely to send more people scurrying toward that record.  [via AHIAS]
