The Antlers - Bear

i cannot stop listening to this album, Hospice by The Antlers. it's so sad and moving, yet i don't get depressed while listening to it. i heard it classified as dream pop, which was a new term to me, but it perfectly fits. this is the kind of album you find addicting, and listen to over and over and over. it could be termed a "theme album" which i typically don't go for, and there seems to be a fair amount of controversy over what it's theme is...but the general idea seems to be a reflecting of an abusive relationship illustrated by the analogy of a hospice worker and a terminally ill patient. there are tons of other theories about the album, about this song, about other songs...i could go on and on. but give it a listen...let me know your theories
