Okkervil River: The Silver Gymnasium
Buy! - (ATO)
This Austin band’s seventh studio album is a concept record set in 1986 in the small town of Meriden, NH where Okkervil bandleader Will Sheff grew up. It’s a sweet, nostalgic, hook-filled set reflecting on childhood friendships and the wonders of ‘80s pop culture, while also bringing a heavier emphasis on synths to the band’s epic orchestral folk-pop sound. 8/2/2013 - Don Yates
