Okkervil River

I have been a member of emusic for a while. I get 50 downloads a month. Some months it's hard to find things I want to download, so I hit the recommendations. Sometimes I'm lucky, sometimes not. Last month I downloaded Okkervil River's album The Stage Names. I had never heard of them. But, I liked their stuff immediately. I think the track "John Allyn Smith Sails" is fantastic, but unfortunately I could not find a decent video. The video below is of "Our Life Is Not A Movie Or Maybe", also a good track. Enjoy.

Their song, "Love to a Monster" must have some of the very harshest words I have heard in ages. It's the best breakup song I've heard this year.
