Hospice is the third studio album by American indie rock band The Antlers, and their first concept album. It was initially self-distributed by the band in March 2009, and was eventually remastered and re-released once they signed to Frenchkiss Records in August of the same year. Hospice tells the story of a relationship between a hospice worker and a female patient suffering from terminal bone cancer, their ensuing romance, and their slow downward spiral as a result of the woman's traumas, fears, and. The Antlers - Hospice Full Album - Official Audio. Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy Full Album. Hospice is the third album by The Antlers, who move from being a Peter Silbermans solo project into a three-piece band formed with drummer Michael Lerner and multi-instrumentalist Darby Cicci who, along with Zan Goodman, designed the artwork. The albums also features guest vocals by singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten. The album was originally self-released, selling out all of the quantities in stock.

Buy Digital Album. 7 USD or more. Hospice is bereft of irony and cynicism, as befits a rather ghastly narrative that feels, perhaps deceptively, autobiographical. This sense of the boundary between self and world-at-large collapsing permeates Hospice. The Antlers - Hospice review: The hardest thing is never to repent for someone else, it's letting people in. The album, first self-released by the band in March 2009 and then re-released through Frenchkiss Records in August later that year, tells the story of a man losing a loved one to cancer, not only having to deal with her complaints and unstable feelings towards him, but also inflicting on himself the pain of watching her die. As well, integral to enjoying Hospice is recognition of the fact that it works. The Antlers Format: Audio CD. Please retry. I took the opportunity to look up the album on YouTube. She had told me to listen through the whole thing straight, which was quite an investment, now that I think about it, but I was feeling agreeable. Hospice is the sound of simple done sickeningly well. Atrophy' and Bear' lift the same sense of piano-built purpose as Spiritualized's stately Songs in A&E. That Silberman mumbles parts of his falsetto on these tracks is all the more compelling. Genre: Indie Rock. Full Review. Hospice The Antlers album. Hospice tells the story of a relationship between a hospice worker and a female patient suffering from terminal bone cancer, their ensuing romance, and their slow downward spiral as a result of the woman's traumas, fears, and disease.

I find it incredibly odd that so many people, over 5 years after this semi obscure record release have thought this album sounds bad. I've had this since the day it came out, and have never once thought it sounded bad. It almost feels like, especially considering all the recent reviews, it's some weird marketing ploy. Just so odd. Colored vinyl and vinyl that hasn't been remastered and from the same mix, will sound at best the same as the original pressing unless it was pressed at a better plant, which the new release hasn't been. I don't buy these reviews at all.
I'm a huge fan of this album and bought this press sealed new. Despite overt surface noise the mastering was extremely bad and sounded horrible on my hifi setup, as many more will attest. Grab the new issue and hear for yourself. It sounds like a whole different album.
I now have both versions and i can confirm you that the new one sounds much better. I was very disappointed about how it sounded on the first pressing (i thought it might have been just mine having problems). Try and buy it, it's worth it :)
Discogs reviews do not cover everyone's thoughts on this particular record. This has been a common issue that people have had for years.It is being listed as remastered on many sites ( ) plus on the discogs listing for it, so there's that.Plus putting it on two slabs of wax would serve to include sound quality by at least some margin, seeing as the album is 52 minutes long and shouldn't have been put on 1xLP in the first place.You more than likely received a pressing with minimal surface noise and didn't notice just how flat the record sounded. You're more than willing to believe an indie label would spend nearly 10 years shittalking its own pressing of its own album on discogs and other websites + in real life conversations just so they could repress it on vinyl that costs like 4 dollars more than the original (because it's on 2xLP), but do you genuinely think that's the case?
Prayers have been answered. Available on 2xLP white vinyl. Not seemingly limited at the moment, but better to pick it up now. Available here, on Bullmoose, and on Amazon.
Love Me
you received yours? i pre-ordered this and still waiting on mine.
Just preordered it, here's to hoping this pressing sounds good.
10th anniversary pressing that's actually good is hopefully on the horizon.
Probably the worst sounding record I have in my entire collection. Which is unfortunate because it’s one of the best indie rock records of the ‘00s
I agree. My disk looks perfect but sound like a hot mess.
Risky Strong Dromedary
The album has been lauded for its "power to emotionally destroy listeners". This is true. The sound on this absolutely horrendous pressing is so noisy and muddled that it could make anyone cry in frustration.Such a shame that such a spectacular album received such a poor pressing.
I have this pressing and can say it sounds amazing. I have none of the problems being mentioned below. Pretty surprised it has been a bad expereince for so many folks, great music, great pressing!
Whoa, they weren't kidding. Terrible sound on the vinyl. Muddy, crackle, low volume. Yikes. Shame as the record is really quite lovely.
Another confirmation of a bad pressing. Horrible sound quality in a number of different ways.
I got a copy of this from VNYL and it's horribly off-center. The sound is distorted and crackly. I'm assuming the grooves have been affected because the sound clarity and volume vary with each rotation. The music is great, but this pressing is terrible.
First play was rough, same issues as everyone else here is saying. My gf suggested cleaning it, and that helped as dramatically as this album is. AllI did was wipe it with a microfiber cloth. I plan on cleaning it again after it finishes playing, and probably every other time I want to destroy my emotions going forward.
I bought 3 copies: All three copies are really bad considering the press quality as it stands below many times. We could call this a misspress. A shame considering the beauty of this work.
Seems like everyone complaining is dealing with faulty pressings. It's a well mastered record, done by Salt. However my copy is filled with noise and non-fill, classic Rainbo Pressing.
The price just sky-rocketed from 10 to 45 dollars. wat
Ordered one through my local store - pressing is horrible. Sound quality is a rollercoaster in sync with the rotation of the record; heavy distortion throughout the entire record, as well as loads of surface noise. Returned it to the store and ordered a second one in hopes of getting a better copy. Unfortunately that wasn't the case, as the second one was the same or even worse. So that got send back too!The album is a masterpiece but the vinyl is a mess. Too bad!
New to vinyl as of last year and this is the first record I've purchased that I'm highly disappointed in. The sound was very washed out and not reminiscent of the beautiful album I'm familiar with.
Isn't the mastering of compression of the vinyl copy different(better) from the CD? Though my copy has plenty of scratches and partial distortion, overall vinyl still sounds better.
After only ever hearing this album from a digital download, I was happy to get the vinyl and hear that it sounds very clean & clear! Better than the digital. I knew that the album was recorded fairly low fidelity, so it's nice to hear it cleaned up well.I can't say I've experienced any of the speed or sound quality issues that some people have mentioned here.Another pro of the vinyl is reading the lyrics from the included printed insert while listening; this album is a ride!
I fell asleep listening to this album for a week straight. I kissed a girl who told me this was her favorite album. We don't talk anymore. I still listen to it.
I've got no issues with my pressing. The speed is accurate, and the sound is much nicer than digital. Centering seems to be as good as any, and as for the lack of bottom end, it is certainly there when the band desires (Shiva, in particular), but I think that overall, there just isn't a lot of low end presence and "oomph" because that simply isn't what was intended. I've listened to the digital version of this over the same system as I'm listening to the LP, and I find the vinyl superior to the digital, much more clear and defined.
Can't believe I've experienced the same poor quality pressing LP.Musically, the album itself is soul destroyingly brilliant, yet the quality of the pressing is incredibly poor.Please post if you know where I can access a good quality pressing.Thankyou
i thought this too when i first put it on, but eventually i turned the bass on my stereo receiver to -4 (usually at +2-3) and my treble down to +4 (usually+5-6) and it sounded really good. maybe you have an EQ problem.
I've read a few comments regarding the speed issues of the record. After hearing this album through multiple formats I've concluded it has nothing to do with the record, it's actually a part of the music. The ambient samples drift in and out of tempo underneath the song, adding a dream like texture. Keep in mind, this is a concept album dealing with life, death, and dreams. It wouldn't be beyond the band to incorporate rich atmospheres to the record. 5/5.
same from germany. but i was expecting such a bad quality before reading it here (stupid from me!)....... .
I've listened to this LP countless times, and although I do notice a slight lack of detail and depth, especially in the low end, I've never noticed any speed fluctuations.
Absolutely love the album, but this record is very poor. It's a shame because it really takes away from the album to be honest.
Shame that this record is bad. I was looking forward to get it.Maybe I'll still get it just for the artwork and to have it in my collection, or wait for a reissue.
Same thing. When listening, it seems an old music cassette playing instead of mint lp. Wouldn't recomend buying and selling, since obviously it is a manufacturing spoilage.
I just received this album just today. The pressing quality is rather poor and even worse, the center hole is not in the center, so the speed of the music goes up and down. Really disappointing, as this is such a fine piece of music.
