All Music Guide:
Formed in Washington, D.C., in 2001, Antelope gained a reputation through touring with Dischord mainstays such as Q and Not U, Black Eyes, Soccer Team, and Fugazi bassist Joe Lally. Over the first six years of their career, the band released a self-titled EP (a split venture with Dischord and their own Bug Records), a two-song EP (2004's Crowns/The Flock), and a full-length (2007's Reflector) on Dischord. Made up of Bee Elvy, Mike Andre, and Justin Moyer -- alumni from bands such as Vertebrats and (arguably) semi-legendary El Guapo -- Antelope became a mainstay in the Dischord family at the tail end of the first decade of the 21st century, and backed up their solid releases with both regional and full U.S. tours.
