Okkervil River

Throughout its last few albums, singer-songwriter Will Sheff and his indie-folk crew Okkervil River have delved into grandiose atmospheres, utilizing complex orchestral arrangements alongside its sunny, sleek stylings. With the newest release, Away, though, Sheff strips down to turn toward a storytelling melancholy, narrating painful recent life transitions through death and adversity.
