I’m rather curious about the timing of The Antlers review that showed up on Pitchfork on August 4th, 2009. Seems like a hell of a delay considering Drawer B posted about them in January after reading about them on Music for Kids Who Can’t Read Good, and even NPR did a feature in March ’09.
I don’t make a habit of reading Pitchfork, but aren’t they typically way ahead of the curve? What gives? I mean, it’s great that they gave it an 8.5, but why’d it take so long?
Solved: Originally self-released, Hospice will be re-released in a remastered format by Frenchkiss on August 18
