In 2009, The Antlers put out a very strange album.  Urban legend says the lead singer locked himself away in his apartment for months, letting all his relationships wither, then emerged one day holding this.  This thing.  It’s a concept album, revolving around a relationship between a hospice worker and his terminal cancer patient, who may or may not be a… child.  It is weird as fuck.  It is also, top to bottom, one of the most complete breakup albums I’ve ever heard.  His falsetto can shatter glass.  I can’t recommend it enough.
