Okkervil River

In a burst of excellent news, Okkervil River will be streaming a live performance of their complete, new album I Am Very Far, which won’t otherwise be available until May 10th! You can get this stream courtesy of NPR Music, starting at 6 p.m. central / 7 p.m. eastern time as an audio / video webcast for a limited time at this address.

The webcast marks the first chance to hear ‘I Am Very Far,’ which has already garnered critical acclaim. SPIN raved that the album “often [recalls] Dylan in deep-basement mode.” Billboard said the new songs “push sonic boundaries even by Okkervil River standards” and Uncut praised it as “thrilling” and “their best album yet.”

Today, JAGJAGUWAR released “I Am Very Far: The Lyrics Book” by frontman Will Sheff, a hardbound lyrics book meant to function as an entrance point into the album’s music. Order it here: http://bit.ly/fzgDmW
