The Antlers – VCR (The xx cover)

November 16, 2011

When The Antlers release something new, we’ve come to expect a total and complete work, usually in the form of some sort of meditation on love and pain. But their new EP, (Together), isn’t that kind of work, nor is it trying to be. Instead, it’s simply The Antlers having some fun. And, if you’re willing to accept that that’s all this is, then (Together) is a wildly rewarding listen. This cover of the XX’s “VCR” shows off the band’s versatility, as well as their ability to imbue sobering desperation into even the most hyper-sexualized of songs.
