Other Lives: Strange And Epic Beautyopbmusic.org

In the video above, watch Other Lives play the shimmering and cinematic "Dust Bowl III" for opbmusic.org. The Oklahoma band began as an instrumental group, and draws on its members' collective love of Philip Glass — often using a pair of vibraphones and xylophones to create minimalist patterns — and the music of Ennio Morricone, who scored famous Westerns such as A Fistful of Dollars.

After touring extensively this year with its new record, Tamer Animals — and a fall tour opening for Bon Iver — Other Lives will play a string of West Coast dates in December. The band will tour again in February 2012, opening shows for Radiohead.
