‘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 of their follow up full-length album, ‘Black Sheep Boy’. It has the same tensions but spread over frontman Will Sheff's older, more lethargic songwriting style. Great sparse, early tunes from a band recently noted to be a favourite of Barack Obama's.
