Crystal Antlers, “Little Sister” and “Dead Horses” MP3s

The reason "Little Sister" is notable, and the reason it's a departure from Crystal Antlers' whirlwind of a back catalog, is that it's subdued—the lyrics pushed right to the forefront. It sounds less like a bad peyote trip in the desert right outside of Vegas and more like the work of a band who's calming down in preparation for their sophomore release. Will we be bummed if the band stops all their instrumental freakouts forever? Totally, but it's always nice to have a little range. If anything, both "Little Sister" and "Dead Horses" are welcome breaks from the band's normal balls to the wall approach.
