Okkervil River – “Away”

Okkervil River is an indie-folk band hailing from Austin, TX and Away is their eighth studio album. If you are familiar with the band’s previous output, then this album isn’t going to be anything too drastic. The songs are still catchy in their typical indie-folk realm, but what makes this album really amazing is the guest musicians. The band’s Will Sheff gathered a wide range of jazz and avant-garde musicians to subtly touch the background of the band, and it’s fantastic! Not to mention Marissa Nadler’s backing vocals! Absolutely to die for.
