7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 27th October 2014
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 you able to see the pastel coloured, big-shouldered jackets (that they’re not wearing). There’s a bit of that going on elsewhere too, the swoon of “Lay of the Last Survivor”, for example. “Rider” is more typical of Okkervil River, a standard indie song, by their…er…standards. The single “Wake and Be Fine” has long been the stand-out track here, but there’s a lot happening on this album. Closing track “The Rise” sounds almost like a less cosmic Flaming Lips.
