Sigh...there is nothing quite like the excitement of finding new music (i.e., new to you) that causes you utter audible profanities. I don't mean finding a particular song that you love, but rather a band whose whole repertoire blows your ears off. With that, I present to you: Other Lives
I commonly get excited about new music I hear, but I am somewhat constantly let down when I listen to a whole album and discover there is something missing. Not with these guys.
In the words of NPR's Tiny Music Desk Concert, I leave you with this description: "The Oklahoma band's droning minor-key hymns were seemingly made for wide-open spaces and big skies."
