i think it's like phearth3drag0n or some other kind of geek-speak. i probably spelled it wrong or something. i'm sure zoney will know.



daddy yankee? isn't he the one with that song that sounds like giant singing gorillas or something? ooh-haah! ooh-haah! daddy yankee say ooh-haah!

kind of hard to mock online...i think my sister likes that


pfffffffffffff, u2 is your number 1 by almost 1000 listens!

although i like where the clash are on that list.

Just ordered their first two LP's. I don't think I'll be disappointed, but will likely post a full report in a few weeks.

"The War Criminal Rises and Speaks" would probably be up there on my list if it started when they find the war criminal (about halfway through the song).


I recently fell in love with "So Come Back, I am Waiting" after hearing it live.

"So Come Back, I am Waiting" is my favorite song of theirs right now. I really want to see them play live. I missed a chance back in November due to illness.

As some of you may or may not know, as I've missed this thread entirely, I'm an enormous fan of Okkervil River (in fanship, not body size). Anyways, they just announced a "tour" and they're not coming here. I am not floating down the river of golden dreams right now.


Here it is:

07-13 New York, NY - Castle Clinton
09-06 Brisbane, Australia - The Zoo
09-07 Sydney, Australia - Newtown RSL
09-08 Melbourne, Australia - East Brunswick Club
09-09 Adelaide, Australia - Fowler's Live
09-10 Perth, Australia - Rosemount Hotel
10-03 Little Rock, AR - Revolution *
10-04 Columbia, MO - Blue Note *
10-05 Ames, IA - The Maintenance Shop *
10-06 Madison, WI - High Noon Saloon *
10-07 Chicago, IL - Schubas *
10-08 Chicago, IL - Schubas *
10-09 Ann Arbor, MI - Blind Pig *
10-11 Columbus, OH - Little Brother's *
10-12 Buffalo, NY - Soundlab *
10-13 Northampton, MA - Iron Horse Music Hall *
10-16 Baltimore, MD - Ottobar *
10-18 Durham, NC - Duke Coffeehouse *
10-19 Athens, GA - Caledonia Lounge *
10-20 Asheville, NC - The Grey Eagle *
10-21 Memphis, TN - Hi-Tone *
10-22 Houston, TX - Warehouse Live *

* with Elvis Perkins



Pitchfork also had this to say, which at least kind of made up for the lack of a show that's even remotely close to here:

As previously reported, Okkervil River are currently working on new material, though whether or not it will amount to a new LP has yet to be seen. In April, Jagjaguwar said that the band recorded 22 brand new, very Dylan-/Stones-esque tracks, "complete with ridiculous lyric matter, genre hopping country and R&B numbers, inspired covers, and easily a half dozen moments of pure genius..."

Yay for new music, boo for tours that don't even go to the western half of the US (Texas doesn't count.....for anything....)

I haven't been able to get into them as much as everyone else. Everytime I put them on it seems there is always something else I'd rather listen to. But I haven't given up yet.

Similar to Sufjan, I didn't like them all that much at first either. I saw them open for The Decemberists and thought they were decently good live, though I didn't take much notice other than to the song Westfall (which can be downloaded for free from their official site, along with tracks from each release). After listening to Westfall a lot and liking it, I started listening to the song Black from Black Sheep Boy and got into it also. Picked up Black Sheep Boy last summer and now I have everything they've ever released in stores.....

The moral of this story, I can sympathize and understand if people don't really go for them all that much at first. I certainly didn't.
