Other Lives

Following the breakout success of their second LP, 2011's Tamer Animals, this exquisite Stillwater, Okla., quintet just released the EP Mind the Gap. These songs were written on the road—one was recorded in their van, on a laptop—and finds the band exploring a gauzier, more electronic-based sound than the intricate folk-rock of Tamer Animals. "Take Us Alive," with its mesmerizing violin loop and ghostly piano and vocal melodies, bears a resemblance to the music of Other Lives' patron saint, Thom Yorke, whose work makes an appearance on the EP via the sparse, pattering Atoms for Peace remix of "Tamer Animals." Indians, the transcendent pop project of Copenhagen's Søren Løkke Juul, which recently signed to 4AD Records, will open. ERIN K. THOMPSON
