The only reason Hospice wasn’t in my top 50 of 2009, perhaps, was that I’d only heard experienced two tracks by The Anters‘ quite critically acclaimed album. Those songs were “Bear” and “Two”. Then they visited Daytrotter back in November and I heard a few more. Still, it wasn’t enough to form an overall opinion of the album, of course. The band now gives us a video for “Bear”, and it’s further proof that I really need to get out of this funk in which I’ve been and pick up this record. It’s a little strange and makes you contemplate the meaning behind it, but that’s pretty typical of some of the best music videos around.
