Gene Clark - No Other

No Other, the 1974 solo album from the former Byrds member, is one of those cult-favorite albums that you’re probably never heard of unless you’re part of its cult. The densely orchestrated album pushed the studio excesses of early-’70s Cali folk rock to its natural conclusion, and all that ornamentation served to highlight Clark’s voice. Now, a number of the best vocalists in indie rock — Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold, Beach House’s Victoria Legrand, Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen, the Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser, Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner, Fairport Convention/Plainsong O.G. Iain Matthews — will sing the album, in its entirety, on a very brief tour next year. For the tour, they’ll have an all-Baltimore backing band that includes members of Beach House, Lower Dens, Celebration, and others. Check out the dates below.

1/22 – Philadelphia, PA @ Union Transfer
1/23 – Baltimore, MD @ Floristree
1/24 – Washington, DC @ 9:30 Club
1/25 – New York, NY @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg

If this whole thing is happening to convince us to listen to No Other, mission accomplished.

  1. yes indeed, mission accomplished!

  2. Thanks for the heads up! Tickets purchased.

    I’m considering this a replacement for not forking up $80 for Reflektour tickets.

  3. That’s exactly how musicians should be earning money today. Give people something they can’t get free otherwise, like this dream-team (but please make it a proper collab, not several oohs and aahs from each of the guys, do not half-ass it), make a studio version, live version, dvds, etc and you be profiting. I guarantee.
