The Antlers: Hospice

But something kept me standing by that hospital bed, I should have quit, but instead I took care of you. You made me sleep and uneven, and I didn't believe them when they told me there was no saving you.-"Kettering, or Bedside Manner"

The above comes from the new album from The Antlers, a band that I had no knowledge of until last week. Check the link, there's a whole lot of free music available, as well as the excellent new full-length. The album's been resonating with me quite a lot lately. It's a concept album of sorts, with a plot that's almost Grey's Anatomy-esque, but without any petty drama. Anyway, I highly recommend it. Absolutely haunting.
On a personal note... I never know when to give up. And it's dominating my thoughts these days.
