Almost Zen-like in their simplicity, Dischord Records'Antelope strip punk rock to its bare essentials and, in the process, have turned in a stunning debut album. The formula is simple: motorik drums and a rock-steady bassline blend with two- or three-note guitar riffs while ex-El Guapo's Justin Moyer adding color over top. And…that's it. A tad warmer than their spiritual brethren Gang of Four, the group's off-kilter funk rolls past in a blur of niggling guitar licks and cymbal-shunning drum patterns. As such, you're advised to play these songs on repeat. A lot.
