ANTLER
NOTHING THAT A BULLET COULDN’T CURE
SMALL STONE

The whiskey soaked rock of Antler sounds best in a cheap dive bar in between picks of The Rolling Stones and The Allman Brothers on the jukebox, as this Southern-fried sextet from Massachusetts truly encompasses the aura of backwoods rock. NOTHING THAT A BULLET COULDN’T CURE is an 11-track offering served by ¾’s of local rawkers Roadsaw laden in deep grooves, breezy organ overlays, bluesy guitar heroics, and a darker than average essence that takes charge on tracks like the roadhouse swing of “Frozen Over” and the passionate jangle of “See Me Hang”. A bit of Tom Petty, dashes of Creedence, a double shot of Gov’t Mule, tinges of The Black Crowes, and a pinch of Clutch fronted by Scott Weiland is what Antler doles out on this release, a surefire winner for the pitcher of beer and wings contingent as well as the neo-hippie in us all.
