Now Tentacles, the Antlers’ debut full-length as well as the gum-studded end of Touch and Go, falls into familiar grooves—songs that fly by on Comets on Fire-like orbits between heavy breaths from the band’s bottom-end. When a song occasionally drops back to solid ground, it’s fired back up again by a burst of propulsive drums or some well-timed keyboards, bumped up on the likes of synth-stuttering opener “Painless Sleep,” “Glacier” and others. But it’s the burners—”Dust,” “Andrew” and “Tentacles”—that provide the real power, sending the album off onto a crucial course.

Fourteen songs of shirtless sleaze rock by a bunch of swaggering ’70s guitar degenerates. We will probably DJ about half of this tonight. Note: podcast does not include the actual Pylon song “Feast On My Heart,” but we did add that separately at the bottom of this post!
