OKKERVIL RIVER - The Stage Names

okkervil%20river-stage%20names.jpgIn 2005's Black Sheep Boy, Okkervil River gave us a classic indie rock album. Literary, passionate, nervous, exuberant and dynamic, it played like film, full of recurring characters and themes. Like The National's Boxer, the new Stage Names stands to inherit the rewards of two years of touring, word-of-mouth and eager anticipation. So good on Will Sheff and crew for making a record that equals the superb Black Sheep Boy on every level. The Stage Names is a worthy sequel and honours expectations by relying not on gimmicks, but conviction, spirit and strong writing to seal our love.
