I was a little surprised to read that Gene Clark seems to be a touchstone for indie bands — and this Beach House-led tour and No Other revival is getting pretty good reviews. I had never listened to No Other, so I gave it a good spin over the weekend. For me, it was an ideal album to listen to on a cold, grey winter day when a sick kid means you are canceling all plans and staying home.
It is like listening to an album I’ve heard before, but never heard, if that makes any sense. The backstory is interesting — and I guess No Other is among the pantheon of great “lost” rock albums.
What do you think? Have you heard No Other…and is it a great lost rock album?
