Falling in love with music: 'Burst Apart' by the Antlers + Video

Falling in love with music: 'Burst Apart' by the Antlers

When I think of fall, one thing that comes to mind is the start of days so chilly or stormy that you just want to stay inside wrapped in a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate.

The best accompaniment for that kind of day is music that's delicate and dreamy but also gives you a sense of warmth. "Burst Apart" by the Antlers has always been that way for me. The album in a way is nightmarish and lonely, but brief moments of flickering brightness throughout keep it uplifting.

Unlike the Antlers' first album, "Hospice," which told a tale of loss, death and regret, "Burst Apart" is more about finding a path and moving forward. It's the kind of album that will fuel your emotions and get you thinking.

And isn't that exactly what rainy days at home are for?
