More often than not in the music industry, the loss of a band member can literally be dismembering to a band's lifespan. Once in awhile though, the adverse effect takes place, and sometimes a band can rediscover itself and chart its way into new and exciting musical territory (Joy Division's transformation into New Order is a prime example). For Oklahoma folk artists Kunek, the loss a member correlated with a brand new path of musical introspection. Equipped with a new sound and a new identity, the remaining members re-baptized themselves into their current incarnation, Other Lives. The impending release of their self-titled debut is a five song exercise in evocative melancholy. Soncially, The EP paints a lush wall of strings and percussion that borrows heavily from the Phil Spectre school of production. Front man Jesse Tabish coos his way through the rich orchestration with a haunting lament that feels its way through tangled songs about love and loss. Paper Cities carves its way into the Damien Rice section of your hippocampus, and sounds like the soundtrack to accompany your stare through a rain soaked window (it should be mentioned these guys already got a track onto Grey's Anatomy). Keep an eye out for their self-titled EP to be released October 21st on tbd records. tour dates: Oct 15 - Eskimo Joe's - Stillwater, Oklahoma Oct 17 - VZD'S - OKC, Oklahoma Oct 18 - Mojo's - Columbia, Missouri Oct 21 - Schuba's - w/The Little Ones - Chicago, Illinois Oct 22 - CMJ - The Canal Room (ASCAP Showcase) - New York, New York Oct 24 - CMJ - Mercury Lounge - New York, New York Oct 31 2008 - 51st Street Speakeasy w/The Uglysuit - Oklahoma City Nov 7 - Spaceland - Los Angeles, California Nov 10 - Chop Suey w/ The Little Ones - Seattle, Washington Nov 11 - Doug Fir Lounge w/The Little Ones - Portland, Oregon Nov 14 - The Echo w/The little Ones - Los Angeles, California Nov 15 - Detroit Bar w/The Little Ones Costa Mesa, California
