"This Little Underground"

Among the parade of unknowns I specifically mined, most were unknown for good reason.But I did happen upon one exceptional surprise: Miami band Antics (57 West). Their big, beautiful and loud indie rock is heavily informed by post-rock, making them feel like a really good instrumental band with occasional vocals. Between astral lullabies, surging storms of beauty and even some impressive technicality (dueling guitar finger-tapping!), Antics is the one legit newcomer I encountered. And they played to less than 10 people. Since you weren't there, you should definitely check out their music, which you can do for free at their Bandcamp page ( - Orlando Weekly

"41. “Cynicism” by Antics

While Explosions in the Sky might have spawned an army of shitty post-rock copycats, Antics does a remarkable job of making the dense ambient sound its own. It’s common and all too easy for long-form rock to bore listeners to sleep, but Antics avoids that pitfall with “Cynicism”, a track off of the band’s six-track EP, Make It Good For The Cameras, that showcases singer Kris Alvarez’s muscly pipes." -
