It’s Friday again, which means it’s new music day at 10K Islands, a label in the midst of a song a week series from which some fabulous tunes have arisen. Today’s new treasure of a tune comes from enigmatic act Viigo, who just a few weeks ago appeared on my radar with a sublime song named Move. The project’s new song, Other Lives, engulfs me once again in a barrage of dark, opulent electro R&B. As a devout fan of sleek sultry bands like Tender, Jungle, and MOTHXR, there’s no way I can resist the sensuous heat and smooth warble of Viigo’s Other Lives.

Indie folk rockers Other Lives are back with a stunningly beautiful song named 2 Pyramids. It’s the first offering from a newly announced third full length album, Rituals, due out May 4th. I welcome them back with wide open arms. 2 Pyramids is such a magnificent and epic tune, drenched in a majestic sheen of orchestral lushness. It’s one of the most sweeping gems I’ve encountered this week, complete with haunting ambiance and entrancing drum work.

Oklahoma indie folk rock band Other Lives have a new EP coming on October 23. Here’s their string filled, unique track Take Us Alive from that EP. These guys are complex and brilliant with their layers of instruments and sounds. The EP, Mind The Gap, will also include a remix of Tamer Animals by Thom Yorke’s project Atoms For Peace along with a couple other unreleased tracks. Tamer Animals is the title track off their 2011 album. The fantastic song put the band on the radar for me. Listen to the track below, and check out Atom For Peace’s dark, trippy, experimental remix.

Today seems to be a very electronic, hazy, textured, and glitchy sound day. Here’s another brilliant specimen, this time a remix of Other Live’s Tamer Animals by none other than Thom Yorke (under his Atoms For Peace alias). Mr. Yorke works his magic and voila, it’s a completely new feel and look at the indie folk rock song. Personally, I’m very fond of the original folk rock cut, and I’m totally digging this other approach to it. Below is the original Other Lives song for comparison.

Back to acoustic folksy

June 27, 2012

There’s the rare music I need to be in the mood for, then there’s acoustic, folksy, raw, earnest stuff that I’ll always be down for no matter what’s going on. Call me sensitive. Or call me emo. So, we return to that kind of music with this gorgeous, acoustic performance of Old Statues by Stillwater folk band Other Lives. The session was recorded during the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelno back in June.

As always, KEXP has some goodies on their youtube channel from artists and bands that I like. Just caught up to some of them from this past week. Here’s a few of the goodies for you to enjoy too. 

OFFICIAL VID: Other Lives – Tamer Animals

September 22, 2011

other lives

Well, well. Other Lives is opening for Bon Iver tonight, though I might not get in to see them since I have to rush to the Greek after work. I shared the song previously, but not this brand new music video. Love the vintage look, and definitely liking the song even more.

Check out our Line of Best Fit session…

We met with Oklahoma based folk troupe Other Lives a week or so back whilst they were in London promoting new album Tamer Animals. What follows is a hauting rendition of ‘Old Statues’; suitably autumnal and filled with despair and longing, it’s sure to stir the senses.

I posted about Other Lives a short while back, but just saw this great live performance they posted on their own tumblr. If I saw right, they are opening for Bon Iver at the Greek in Berkeley (and probably at the other stops on Bon Iver’s tour)! Might hafta make sure I catch the opener. 

I might have to get their album Tamer Animals

August 19, 2011

Just checked out more of their songs. I’m lining up their album for purchase in my next batch of albums to buy. I think. Yes. I think I will. Geez listen to the horn solo on Weather!!!
