Okkervil River

The Oedipus Project is up and running with a new media player. No longer will we be hassled with SoundCloud’s legal issues and arcane practices.

So let’s turn our attention to Austin, Texas.

Okkervil River released their sixth album, I Am Very Far, last week.

It’s been three years since their last album, The Stand Ins, when Okkervil River took a brief sojourn as the backup band for Roky Erickson, the 13th Floor Elevators’ legendary frontman.

I Am Very Far is the first Okkervil River album that leader Will Sheff has produced.

“Wake and Be Fine” is a free download from the band’s website.
