I’m not that familiar with Other Lives’ past works, but Tamer Animals has been a fantastic record to listen to for the last week. I doubt this one will turn into a mega hit given that I haven’t seen much press about it, but know that it’s a huge hit in my headphones.
MP3: Other Lives – For 12
After many listens, I finally figured out what band “For 12” reminds me of: Seawolf! I went through a huge Seawolf phase in around 2006 and this reminds me of everything I loved about that band: subtle-yet-quick percussion, orchestral folk production and great vocals. With that said, I still have to give the edge on the album to the title track. It sounds like an orchestral version of the National. Check out a live video of that one below.

PCC fans who preorder the new album have a special treat in store for them. The band recorded a covers EP that they’ll give you gratis with any preorder. So put in your order now and grab covers of the Kinks, Frank Zappa, Thin Lizzy and more!
I heard next to nothing about Architecture in Helsinki’s new album prior to its release, so “Escapee” is my first listen to any of it. It’s nice. It sounds like a good mix of their first two LPs with their most recent. Enjoy the synth riff-pop of these Aussies!
