Listen To This: Okkervil River

So if Karl is gonna tell you what he’s reading, I figure I’ll tell you what I’m listening to… I can’t really claim they’re a secret of any sort these days – they sell out medium size venues across the country, but I have been really digging on Okkervil River recently. Their latest album, The Stand-Ins is growing on me and I consider their previous two albums, The Stage Names and Black Sheep Boy to be among my favorite albums of the past 10 years.

Okkervil River – “Lost Coastlines”

Okkervil River – “Our Life Is Not A Movie Or Maybe”

Okkervil River – “For Real”

Okkervil River – “Girl in Port” (acoustic)

…and because, Holy Jeez, I haven’t seen this yet and I love Crooked Fingers, here is Eric Bachmann of Crooked Fingers doing Okkervil River’s “Bruce Wayne Campbell”:

..and Bon Iver doing “Blue Tulip”:

MP3: Okkervil River – Black
MP3: Okkervil River – No Key No Plan
MP3: Okkervil River – The President’s Dead
MP3: Okkervil River – It Ends With A Fall

Too bad the camera mic gets overloaded when the bass kicks in. 😦

edit: slightly less assy sound quality
