Other Lives


You wouldn’t know listening to the forthcoming album from Oklahoma’s Other Lives that they were from the States, let alone based in Stillwater. Upon first listen, they have a British sound that made Travis and their other contemporaries ever so popular. The use of piano, cello, and delicate vocals make for some spine tingling moments (in a good way) and sets them aside from their British counterparts. The S/T album will be released April 7th and make sure you catch them at SXSW this year!!!

Miranda Lee Richards


Miranda‘s latest album, Light of X, is hazy beauty. She was mentored by a member of Metallica, played with the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre, and her music is best compared to 70’s AM delicate singer-songwriter nurtured by Tapestries or Blue. Richard’s album is out now via Netwerk and she will be on KCRW today!

The news of a new Juan Maclean album is good news, but this new remix that he did for Circlesquare has his signature written all over the track! The new remix comes from an EP for Cirlesquare where Ed Banger’s Mickey Moonlight does the other remix duties. The tracks comes from the full length, Songs About Dancing And Drugs. Kind of familiar, no?

Peaches will be making her return to Denver! I last mentioned the War Child compilation a couple of months ago, but I can’t stop and believe how much of a wonderful job they did at compiling the album. Do yourself a favor and purchase one, it’s for a good cause! You can purchase one here. The reason I mention the compilation, is because Peaches contributes one of the best songs on the album (I like Beck’s cover of Dylan).
