The Antlers Cover ‘Wish You Were Here’
The A.V. Club has been running a phenomenal series, titled ‘Undercover,’ in which it invites current bands to cover classic songs. The web feature has resulted in some killer pairings, including The Wedding Present covering The Rolling Stones and Ben Folds covering Elliott Smith, but the latest entry is really a doozy—Brooklyn’s own The Antlers covers Pink Floyd’s classic ‘Wish You Were Here.’ The band turns in a great, droning, supremely melancholy rendition that is must-listen stuff.
If you’re interested in hearing more from The Antlers, here’s their single ‘Bear,’ off of 2009’s Hospice.
