New Music From The Points/Antelope’s Bee Elvy
No, not together, although that would be kind of funny.
The Points—pictured here, covered in beer and spit—recently posted five new demos on their MySpace page. Three chords used to be all The Points could handle, but these scuzzy, blown out recordings prove that the band's aesthetic has evolved a little bit over the last year. "Now I Want It" has at least six chords.
Also, The Points are playing Friday, Oct. 16th.

Is Antelope broken up? Hard to say for certain. It's been a minute since the band's full length LP, Reflector, came out and they haven't performed a show in almost a year. Then again, Antelope (which includes City Paper contributor Justin Moyer) has never really been in a hurry. Reflector came out two years after the band's last 7" single. Not exactly a hot-on-the-heels-type situation.
Whatever the status of Antelope may be, singer/guitarist/drummer Bee Elvy has been keeping busy. He recently posted some new material to his Website. Three video clips find him chanting over some house music-inspired synth bleeps.
