Okkervil River - Words & Music - 2011

by Russ Borris

This Austin band made a name for itself with concept albums that dealt with popular culture, the rock 'n roll lifestyle and heroin addiction. Now Okkervil River has released 'I Am Very Far' -- a set of songs that defy any one theme, but still feel connected. Frontman Will Sheff and the band recently shared a few of the songs and stories, during a Studio A session with FUV's Russ Borris. [05/11/2011]
