Featured Stream: Other Lives

Posted by - 09:21 AM on 05/09/11
If you're a regular poster in our forums, then you're probably aware that I have been promoting Other Lives' new album, Tamer Animals, excessively in the last few months. That comes as no surprise considering that this is one of the only two albums to have absolutely blown me away this year; it's simply breathtaking. But words can't do this gorgeous album any justice, so I'll just urge you to check this out if you are a fan of Fleet Foxes and The National, because Tamer Animals is the perfect lovechild of those bands. So without further ado, head over to their AP.net profile to stream the album in its entirety, and let us know what you think about it in the replies.

Haha oh dear, I can't believe I didn't reach out to you. You were the first person I thought of when I received this album a while back. My bad.

Let me know if you like it!

Listened to bits and pieces, how National are we talking?

The National, generally speaking, is one of my favorite bands.

If you enjoy The National, you should be able to enjoy this as well. How National? I don't know; you can listen and judge for yourself.

Don't expect The National v.2.0, though.

Vocals don't sound like The National, not sure where the comparison is (then again I don't listen to The National).

You don't see how fans of Fleet Foxes or The National would enjoy this?

I'm not really sure why people take comments like the ones in the main post as "This sounds exactly like (insert band name)." Those comments are just meant to give people an idea of what to expect.

I don't listen to either band much..

And I'm guilty of that...I guess I like good comparisons...

That's as good a comparison as any, though. Unless, of course, you expect to listen to Fleet Foxes or The National v.2.0, which would be silly.
