Like the indie rock equivalent of Sergio Leone’s spaghetti Western films, Tamer Animals mixes dusty, dramatic songwriting with orchestral arrangements, creating a sound that’s difficult to trace to any single genre or location. It’s an Americana album, but only by the slimmest margin; few Americana albums are this cinematic, with horns and symphonic strings occupying as much space in the mix as the acoustic guitars. Violins sweep their way through “For 12” like waves, adding some ambience to a song that would otherwise be a minor-key folk ballad. Other songs have grander gestures that border on the Arcade Fire’s anthemic wallop, but Tamer Animals rarely sustains that sort of epic sound over an entire track. Instead, the album flits between the majestic and the miniature, rooting each song in Jesse Tabish’s guitar arpeggios and weary folk vocals while finding ample opportunity to bring in other instruments. Other musicians are brought in, too, including a violin quartet, and the result is an album that manages to sound both elegant and organic, like classical music made by people living off the land. © Andrew Leahey /TiVo

The fourth full-length effort from the Oklahoma-based indie rockers, For Their Love finds Other Lives in fine form, applying their moody sonic expertise to a spectral ten-song set that parses themes of self-worth and existential dread in an age of political, social, and economic turmoil. Commencing with the ruminative "Sound of Violence," a sumptuous bit of '60s-leaning orchestral pop that evokes the Wally Stott string arrangements of "Montague Terrace"-era Scott Walker, For Their Love was self-produced in Oregon's Cooper Mountain region in frontman Jesse Tabish's A-framed cabin, and the material mostly reflects that pastoral setting. The group's love for sharp Morricone-worthy guitar stabs and ascending choral vocals is evident throughout, with the sinister "Nites Out," a churning sea of orchestral bombast worthy of a 007 action set-piece providing the biggest bang for the buck. The plaintive "Dead Language," with its high and lonesome harmonica and fluttery piano, filters the group's widescreen vision through more of a portrait lens, but it retains its predecessor's classicist '60s cinema vibe, as does the more sprightly title track, which incorporates bursts of loungey bossa nova into its distinct, anglophile-kissed brand of chamber-Americana. For all of its adherence to in-the-moment takes and attempts to dial back some of the studio chicaneries of earlier outings, For Their Love is still almost alarmingly ornate -- some of that might have to do with the omnipresent cathedral-like reverb -- but much like 2015's similarly outstanding (and elaborate) Rituals, there's really never a dull moment. © James Christopher Monger /TiVo

Icy, overcast, lush, and melancholic are not words that are often used when one considers the largely agricultural state of Oklahoma, but Stillwater-based indie rockers Other Lives must live in an alternate universe version of South Central America, because their evocative blend of heady Baroque pop and brooding, windswept, electro-alt-rock invokes not the frontier, but the White Cliffs of Dover. Like English mood casters Alt-J and Radiohead (the band served as the opening act on the latter's King of Limbs tour in 2012), Other Lives specialize in widescreen cinematic pop. Their third studio long-player is as seductive as it is tense, offering up layer upon layer of sweeping strings, arpeggiated electronic vistas, and ghostly harmonies, all of which frame lyrics that dance with furtive feet around the concepts of technology-induced dystopia and existential dread. On their first two outings, the band flirted with the mainstream, but Rituals dives right in (with help from co-producer and Atoms for Peace drummer Joey Waronker), offering up plenty of shimmery, meticulously crafted moments of pure pop bliss that crackle and pop in all the right places. However, all of the fancy window dressing can't hide the fact that standout cuts like the soulful "Fair Weather," the hypnotic "Need a Line" and "Beat Primal," and the Morricone-tinged "Easy Way Out" are rooted in darkness. Even at its most sumptuous (the blustery, near Gothic-sounding "No Trouble" feels like an Edward Scissorhands-era Danny Elfman production), Rituals oozes dread, but ultimately it's that contrast between finery and paranoia that makes it so vital. © James Christopher Monger /TiVo
