As The Antlers explore such uplifting themes as terminal illness, hopelessness, despair and suicide, I’m reminded of that line in High Fidelity: “Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?” What’s most stunning about this song is the explosion of horns and Peter Silbeman’s voice offset the miserable story. Not to worry parents of the world, I’ve listened to this song 100 times and I’m still a happy guy. Maybe even happier.
