There's always beauty in the dark, if you keep your mind and heart open to it. Brooklyn band the Antlers understand that adage, and then burst through it.

Led by singer and songwriter Peter Silberman, the Brooklyn band made one of the most crushingly dark and poetic records in recent memory, 2009's Hospice. The song cycle based on the love between a cancer patient and a hospice worker won the trio enviable critical fame and a less enviable cult audience. With this year's Burst Apart, the band still makes mood music, but with a greater sense of hopefulness.

The thrilling electronic layers, trumpet flourishes and danceable rhythms push out against the pointed guitars and chilling, falsetto vocals. And while the album is defined by its studio craft, the band tests its live, spontaneous mettle in this KDHX session. The inventive hooks of Silberman's songs carry the day.
