A.V. Undercover

The Antlers cover Pink Floyd

A melancholy Brooklyn band tackles a melancholy classic.

About This Episode

The Antlers released one of last year's best (and most heartbreaking) albums: Hospice is a sorta-concept disc about death and relationships. It wasn't a huge leap for the Brooklyn band to choose Pink Floyd's melancholy "Wish You Were Here," a song about longing and loneliness for a person who's now gone. The Antlers are in the midst of a tour opening for The National; this week they'll play Radio City Music Hall, which must be pretty damn exciting. They'll also play Lollapalooza this summer, so try to keep it down so you can hear them.
