Okkervil River
The Silver Gymnasium

Well, this is a schizophrenic bag of oddities huddling awkwardly together beneath a worn-out umbrella of lyrical nostalgia. Like a bag of Pick 'n' Mix with all the interesting sweets taken out. Nice bag though! Opening track (and first single) 'It was my Season' is a bouncy summery pop song with morose lyrics and chucked-i...view item »

Okkervil River
In The Rainbow Rain

If you found yourself somewhat depressed by Okkervil River’s introspective album, ‘Always’, then ‘In the Rainbow Rain’ is the welcome catharsis. Produced by bandleader Will Sheff, and mixed by Shawn Everett (Perfume Genius, The War on Drugs), the new LP is a hopeful...view item »

Okkervil River
I Am Very Far

Okkervil River’s sixth album “I am Very Far” begins with rhythmical opener “The Valley”. This is a song which builds with layers upon layers of texture added by extra instruments and increasing gang-like chanting vocals. “Piratess” stalks along like a panther and has an eighties-ness that almost makes yo...view item »

Okkervil River
Away

After leaving us in the dark since 2013’s The Silver Gymnasium, mystery surrounded Texas folk rockers Okkervil River. Apart from some digital singles in 2014, we didn’t know what was going on, but now frontman Will Sheff is clearing things up. Away is somewhere between a true Okkerv...view item »

Okkervil River
Black Sheep Boy (10th Anniversary Edition)

Okkervil River
Down The River Of Golden Dreams

New one by Okkervil River on Jagjaguwar. This is tuneful lilting countryish rock in the manner of a mellower Bright Eyes. The first song is an excellent effort though the blurb on the sleeve mentioning Pavement and REM is misleading. Its more like the kind of records Conor Obers...view item »

Okkervil River
Sleep and Wake-Up Songs

‘Sleep and Wake-Up Songs’ is the third EP release from American indie rock band from Austin, Texas, Okkervil River, who formed back in 1998 and take their name from a short story by Russian author Tatyana Tolstaya set on the river in St Petersburg. Released in November 2004, this EP was intended as an interim release in anticipation ...view item »

Okkervil River
The Stand Ins

Okkervil River has the sound of a band that found its identity in roadhouses and small venues across the country. Like the Hold Steady, even their studio albums feel plucked from live performances, with all the rough folkish charms, the genial stomp that would come from rowdy crowds and the plaintive pleas of the faux-humblest of singer-songwrit...view item »

Okkervil River
The Stage Names

Lots of people encountered Okkervil River by their 2005 album Black Sheep Boy, but The Stage Names just evolves and expands the same kind of music. It's a bit less angular, a little more introspective, and a lot catchier -- it hasn't gotten any less poignant, but the melodies are rollicking fun. They embrace the rock and roll here with lots of d...view item »
