Okkervil River is responsible for one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. I was mixed on the last album, though there were a few real standouts of course "Lost Coastlines" and this one.
Love the lyrics "I go home take off clothes, smoke a bowl..." I'm interested in whatever they do next. I wish the dude rocking the baritone sung more.
