My New Favourite Band

Literate, banjo-loving and just a plain rip rollicking blast.  Okkervil River might be named after a Russian short story and use words like ‘melée’ in their lyrics but they sure know how to pump out simple toe-tapping/heart-rending/gorgeous tunes.

And, to continue the Serge Gainsbourg theme, they’ve also done a beautiful rendition of Je Suis Venu Te Dire Que Je M’en Vais [trans. I Came Here To Say I’m Going Away]

Rock at its fun and intelligent best.
