Okkervil River: I Am Very Far, due out May 10

For some reason, these guys never really captured my attention until I spent some time with the disc they did with Roky Erickson last year, True Love Cast Out All Evil:

... that thing is a masterpiece, and I really got in sync with Okkervil River, and am consequently very excited about their upcoming disc. I'll add them to the list of awesome Texas rock bands I can't say enough good things about: Centro-matic, Old 97's, Deathray Davies...

This song, "Wake and Be Fine", is terrific.

Free track available here:
