The Antlers Perform "Drift Dive" Live on WFUV

WFUV's "The Alternate Side" (TAS) program has released a video of The Antlers performing "Drift Dive," the final track on my latest Late Fall 2012 Playlist. The song is from the group's recent EP, Undersea. I heard it playing in my car one morning on WNYE 91.5, where TAS broadcasts in New York City weekday mornings.  (It's also easy to listen anytime online at

"Drift Dive" was chosen as the perfect closer months ago, with its dream like, floating vocals and spaced out instrumentation.  IIt would also be a good lesson in the power of restraint as the band builds intensity while holding back at the same time. You can also catch an official video of the song on YouTube, which is dedicated to their hometown of New York City after hurricane Sandy.  TAS has posted the rest of the session along with a band interview here.
