Peter Silberman of The Antlers Releases Debut Solo Album

With his much-anticipated solo album Impermanence out today via Anti- Records, Peter Silberman has announced a number of live dates, many of them performed in living rooms.

No stage, tiny sound system, a highly intimate affair limited to 40-60 people. Peter will also perform in Brooklyn at The Park Church Co-Op and has just announced additional tour dates in Europe.

Silberman has also shared the video for “Ahimsa”, the penultimate track on Impermanence. He says of the video, "In these strange days, it feels like the most far-fetched scenarios and disastrous outcomes have become entirely plausible. This video, assembled from two sets of archival footage, was made to express this fear-fatigue that’s set in, the exhaustion from reckoning with so many terrifying possibilities."

Early acclaim for Impermanence:

“Gloriously spacious… Crafted from gently shimmering electric guitars and murmuring keyboards, Silberman’s soft, high voice, delivers a series of quietly emotive haikus… Nine-minute opener ‘Karuna’ sounds like Jeff Buckley singing Talk Talk, while ‘Gone Beyond’ locks into the subtlest of grooves, making explicit Silberman’s soulfulness”. Uncut – 8/10

“Impermanence resonates like a lullaby or a prayer – akin to Jeff Buckley’s hushed, hold arrangement for Hallelujah, pared back to the bone, infused with Talk Talk’s aching spaces.” MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“From the serene crooning of “Maya” through the twittering birds of the heavenly “Ahimsa”, this is an album with the tortured spirit of Jeff Buckley’s Grace and Radiohead’s The Bends at its heart. It is a work of infinite sadness and warm melodies, a hushed celebration of sensitivity that is at odds with the ever-increasing pace of the world." Line of Best Fit

“Though there are also occasional woodwinds, brass, keyboards and percussion, Impermanence is almost like an experiment in minimalism, to see how fully Silberman can deconstruct songs and still make them compelling. Quite a bit, as it turns out.” Paste Magazine

Acclaimed for his work with The Antlers, Impermanence is Silberman’s first solo outing, but it is an artistic continuation of the journey he began with his band on Hospice, Burst Apart, and Familiars. The album is a musical document of Silberman’s experience with a hearing impairment that led him to leave Brooklyn for a secluded setting in upstate New York. As the sensitivity and static began to subside, Silberman gradually re-introduced sounds into his world to create these beautifully sparse and minimal songs.
