For their upcoming EP of outtakes from their most recent release, Burst Apart, The Antlers are collaborating with the likes of Neon Indian and Nicole Atkins. Also featured on the EP, entitled (together), is a cover of the xx's "VCR." The Antlers version of the track focuses largely on the electronic aspects of the original song. It keeps the light, playful keys of the original largely intact, only slowing them down and giving them a slightly off-beat effect, but their impact is still the same. Through the layers of synths, bleeps, and blips, The Antlers were able to take a pretty laid back song and make it, well, more laid back. Check out "VCR" below and pick up a copy of (together) on 11/22.
