If you haven't heard 'Hospice' by The Antlers yet: you can go to hype machine and click 'Zeitgeist'. It's in there at number 8 in the 'Best Albums of 2009' chart.
Best cancel your appointments for the rest of the day, though. This is an album about cancer, death, guilt and the inability to rescue your loved ones from pain. No flinching.
Key track 'Bear' just received its video treatment: an allegorical piece about a young woman dragging a giant black orb through a forest.
Amazing song. Amazing band.
Watch the video after the jump.
