First Listen: The Antlers, 'Familiars'

The Antlers' new album, Familiars, comes out June 17.

Originally published on Tue June 17, 2014 12:34 pm

The 2009 album Hospice sparked a major breakthrough for The Antlers, but it's not the sort of success a band would want to duplicate, even if it could. As the title suggests, Hospice was built around a dark unifying theme — an examination of the events surrounding the slow death of singer Peter Silberman's friend — so the record comes by its desolate, life-and-death intensity honestly.

Originally published on Tue June 17, 2014 12:33 pm

When Willie Nelson was a young hustler selling songs to Patsy Cline's people, he probably never thought he'd become the crowd-anointed sage of country music. But that's what happened as the Redheaded Stranger went gray, turned smoking weed into a brand and a virtue, and produced a discography that added up to its own American Songbook.

Originally published on Tue June 17, 2014 12:34 pm

It takes just two words to sum up Salvadora Robot, the new album by the Colombian band Meridian Brothers: "happy weirdness."

Last year's release of the anthology Devocion: (Works 2005-2011) introduced the quirky group to audiences beyond avant-garde circles in Bogota, and Salvadora Robot reiterates that these free thinkers don't merely throw out tradition. They make it sound, well, weird.

Originally published on Sun June 15, 2014 9:32 pm

British singer-songwriter Sam Smith isn't shy. With a steady, well-trained swell of a voice and a knack for whipping in and out of his falsetto in a hairsbreadth, he doesn't feel the need to hide — not by stifling his vocal abilities and not by ducking beneath distracting, colorful production. But on his full-length debut, In the Lonely Hour, he proves that he can play that game when he feels like it.

Dick and Jane Song of the Week: Invisible

Look over here. 
Look over there. 
Look everywhere. 
Do you see me sittin’ there? 
Do I have to stare? 
Let me close the door of opportunity. 
Do I have to be noticed in a picture? 
‘Cause you don’t see me. 

Am I invisible? 
Am I invisible? 
Am I invisible? 
Oh. Oh. Oh. Oh. Oh. 
Am I invisible?

Dick and Jane Song of the Week: Without You

Lyin' here, in tears, 
I never thought I would see, 
A time when you weren't part of me. 
You meant so much to me. 
And now that you are gone, I feel empty. 

Growing up, facing fears, 
Never thought there'd be a day, 
That I'd see you go away. 
You always taught me. 
And now that you are gone, I can't sleep. 

The memories are in my heart, Even though we're far apart. 
Staring at the door. Don't know what to do anymore. 
Staying up. Being tough. 
Trynna make it through.... 
Without you. 
Without you.

Dick and Jane Song of the Week: Need to Know

How much longer can this really go down? 
I'm hearing you fight from dusk 'til dawn, 
Just wanting it all to move on 
and im scared all over again. 

If I try to fix it, 
it wouldn't really work, 
i'd only makes things worse and then 
i'm scared all over again. 

i need to know (repeat) 
how far can this go? (repeat) 

i need to know 
how far can this go? 

When what I want to say 
won't come out the right way. 
it comes out and goes back in 
and i'm scared all over again
