Other Lives, Indians
Stillwater, Okla., five-piece Other Lives make meticulously crafted music, encompassing sounds from dark Americana to soaring, cinematic textures. On their album Tamer Animals, the band’s prodigious skills as multi-instrumentalists comes into full play. Band leader and composer Jesse Tabish sets the standard with haunting, lived-in vocals that cut through the almost overwhelming beauty. Other Lives made quick fans of their 2012 tourmates Radiohead and Bon Iver, and it’s easy to see why. Copenhagen’s Indians, newly signed to 4AD, open.
