Biografía

La banda liderada por Will Sheff, compositor que lleva varios años recibiendo muy buenas críticas por esas composiciones en las que brillan por igual el country alternativo y el indie-rock guitarrero, pretende conseguir lo que desde hace tiempo lleva buscando: un puesto de honor en la escena independiente internacional.

Se les ha comparado con Bright Eyes y su música evoca muy diferentes sensaciones, dependiendo de la garra que impregne cada una de las canciones de este The Stage Names, su mejor trabajo hasta el momento. La obra se presenta sólida desde los primeros acordes de “Our Life Is Not A Movie Or Maybe”, un tema con mucha fuerza vocal y tambores lejanos que evocan un sentimiento de lucha pacífica. Con “Unless It Kicks” siguen dando prioridad al mensaje, pero una brillante atmósfera folk lo envuelve todo hasta conseguir enlazar con “A Hand To Take A Hold Of The Scene”, más bailable y melódico.

Como toda banda indie que se precie, la energía, tarde o temprano, deberá ceder espacio a la agonía instrumental con voces susurrantes. Okkervil River no van a ser menos, y se atreven con “Savannah Smiles” y “A Girl In Port”, donde unas voces silenciosas y un tímido piano se hacen los protagonistas. En esta misma onda se mueve “Plus Ones”, pero a diferencia de las anteriores, aporta una armonía implacable que consigue bordar un hit en toda regla.

Por último, destacar “You Can´t Hold The Hand Of A Rock And Roll Man”, que tiende al pop-rock más accesible pero mantiene esos rasgos tan personales que muestran orgullosos estos cinco tejanos de adopción.

    When I'd first read about these guys I must have had a case of temporary dyslexia, because I would have sworn the band name was "Overkill" River. It still bugs me when I hear someone say "Okkervil", even though that's the correct word.

    @prdrums77 totally, it was almost tighter than the album. Which is silly, but seeing the drums live was great just by itself.

    The new album is so good live. It totally changed my perception of the album from seeing it as a good one to thinking it may be among their best.

    As a huge Okkervil River fanboy, I really think this is there best album since Black Sheep Boy. Every song on Silver Gymnasium is so deceptively catchy.

    The Silver Gymnasium is my favorite release of 2013 so far. It reminds me of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." This is a record that I will keep coming back to for a long time.

    Silver Gymnasium is okay I guess, I wouldn't call it a car though.

    Some were better than others yes, but with every new album I'm overjoyed and it makes me fall in love with the band all over again. Like, nothing could get the smile off my face when I was playing The Silver Gymnasium videogame.

    The Silver Gymnasium is exactly what they needed to do. This is such a relaxed album. The songwriting is just perfect, and the tone makes me feel like they would be playing these songs with the same heart and passion regardless of if anyone were even listening. They aren't trying to impress anyone here, they are just enjoying being a band. They have their feet up and are not afraid to take risks and their their energy into every corner of the room. It's just very good. If you can't connect with it the first time through, you might be asking too much from it. This isn't a masterpiece you hang on the wall and stare at, it's a masterpiece you jump in the front seat of and cruise around town.

    Last two (including the new one) records are so so, imo :(

    I'm not going to lie, I was not expecting to like TSG this much. I can easily see it becoming a top 3 Okkervil album for me.

    "i think this album i have listened to maybe a few times at most is worse than ones that i have listened to 10s, maybe 100s of times" yeah no fuckin' shit

    The new one is great. I obviously need to give it more time and get a hold of a lyric sheet to see where it stacks up, but it has some pretty monster songs. I recommend blasting it in the car with the windows down.

    It's neat how difficult it is to tell an OR fan's favorite or least favorite album. I used to really dislike IAVF, but one day I suddenly found it on equal footing with most of their other albums. Surprisingly, I might consider Black Sheep Boy my least favorite. That or Down the River. But one thing's fo' sho, I enjoy them all. Consistent as hell.
