Okkervil River

I don't pretend to have my finger on the carotid artery of hip music. But, I do know the right places to look, and this cat at Aquarium Drunkard hasn't steered me wrong yet.

Check out a couple of mp3's from the Austin, TX band: Okkervil River.

hey luisa! happy new year to you, too! click here to go to the OR website. they have more info. than i can begin to even go through. the crappy record stores i went to today didn't have "Black Sheep Boy" but i'm not dismayed. i will just order it online.

SxSW is crazy big..last time i went, i had to park my car at a friend's house and call a cab to get into downtown..
