The song that got me hooked on Okkervil River┬áis “Our Life is Not a Movie or Maybe.” This track is like it’s long lost sister song. It’s got the same skeleton as “Our Life…” and a formidable (although slightly less dramatic) build up, but it’s dressed up a little more, and feeling more relaxed (probably had a couple of drinks while getting ready). It looks good.

Okkervil Rivers’ album I Am Very Far is out now.
