Pillow Talk

Peter Silberman's intimate howls tell an intimate story. Off The Antlers' follow-up album Burst Apart, "I Don't Want Love" is a peak inside the bedroom of door of friends-with-benefits gone wrong. An honest plea after the last rendez-vous these two protagonists will ever have, Silberman's milky high croons admit, "I should have built better walls/ Or slept in my clothes." This performance by the Brooklyn-based indie trio, at a coffee shop across the pond during The Great Escape Festival, is a perfectly calm presentation of a fairly blunt but understandable thought-process; one that most twenty-somethings have experienced when thinking back on a past lover.
