Song of the Day Number 148
The Antlers - “Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out”
“Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out” is perhaps the most overtly pop moment in The Antlers’ catalogue. The song, which appears on The Antlers’ new album Burst Apart, is a jazzy piece of dream pop flavored with Latin-influenced guitars and supported by a percussive mandolin that appears in the background during the verses. Singer Peter Silberman’s vocals take center stage here, exhibiting an air of newfound confidence during the song’s memorable chorus. It’s a highlight on Burst Apart, and a fascinating sonic departure for the Brooklyn-based band. Read my full review of Burst Apart HERE.
What do you think of this song? How does Burst Apart stack up against The Antlers’ previous release Hospice? What’s your favorite song on the album?

Hospice was an amazing album, but one that was heard to separate from itself- I could (and did) pull songs away to listen to, but always the concept of the album followed. Burst Apart works together as a concrete whole, but I can still pick in on one song or two, pass it along to someone else, whereas with Hospice I needed to throw the whole thing their way.
This all made more sense when I was listening to it on the bus.
(i am going to try and post a song every day)
We’re terrified of one another, terrified of what that means.
But we’ll make only quick decisions, and you’ll just keep in the waiting room,
And all the while I’ll know were fucked, and not getting un-fucked soon.
The Antlers- Bear
