Antelope - Reflector
How to describe Antelope...
I've been asking this question to myself for half a year now and I believe if I try to ask myself again, I may just go crazy. To me, they sound like nothing else. They're odd, simple, and repetitive and because of this, they confuse the hell out of me. They're more minimalist than The White Stripes and the punk music they mostly closely resemble. Good thing about simple music though: you don't have to think about why you like it so much. The music featured on their first full-length album, Reflector, is strangely catchy and replayable. The two album highlights, the addictively energetic "Dead Eye" and vigorously powerful "Justin Jesus", keep you coming back to hear the rest of the songs on display here. Though there are bits of sameness on the album ("Wandering Ghost" closely resembles "Contractions") and the repetition can grate on the nerves after a while, for the most part this is a surprisingly good 2007 release. It's catchy and unique, what's not to love?
Antelope: What sounds wrong to you sounds right to them.
