We first talked about Oklahoma’s Other Lives back in 2009 when we featured the hauntingly beautiful Black Tables. I became slightly obsessed with that track (I enjoyed revelling in my own misery at the time, hell I still do!) and we nearly had them play at Oh! Inverted World but just missed out due to blimin’ calendar issues. We begrudgingly accepted it and moved on, but thankfully it turns out they’ve been spending the past 14 months recording a new incredible album ‘Tamer Animals’ which is released this week in the US and in August for us European types. Soundcloud is previewing the album and it’s as grand and atmospheric and as wonderfully morose as you’d hope. Great for us as we love misery and being all internal and indie and shit.
Listen and love it here:
