Rejoice, my friends, rejoice, for a new album by The Antlers is nearly upon us.'Familiars' will be released on June 16th in the UK on Transgressive Records (17th on the US on Anti). The first track, called 'Palace', arrived to day and it's an absolutely beautiful piece of work. Possibly the saddest trumpet I've ever heard gives way to hauntingly gorgeous but fragile vocals, and instantly reminds me why I love The Antlers so much. If the whole album's as emotional as this I'll be in pieces on the floor once I've heard it.
You can pre-order the the album here (in the UK) or here (in the US).
