Exclusive: The Antlers Offer New Version Of 'Sylvia'

One of this years best CDs is from the Brooklyn-based band The Antlers. Hospice tells the story of a man losing a loved one to cancer. It's an incredibly dark record at times, but stunning and even oddly uplifting.

The band recently went into the New York studio known as The Orchard and recorded a new version of one of the album's standout tracks, "Sylvia."

The lyrics really come through loud and clear on this version.

They're bundling this song on iTunes with this amazing video that's been out for a while called "Two."
