I have been meaning to do this for two weeks, but I tend to procrastinate. This is in honor of Rachel, our fearless violinist who as been in Beirut (and a few other locaitons in Lebanon) for a few weeks.

I have been a mild fan of the band Beirut for a while, but when I saw them live at Coachella last month, they were a gerat surpise. Their sound was bright and full and energetic. Definitely check them out if you can.

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”:
