stunning

BelgianPeter

of all Okkervil River albums, this is the one I listen to most--and, believe me, I love Okkervil river. There is an intimate beauty to these songs, a haunting quality, a tenderness and fragility in the voice. He sings "worse: here than on any other album, the voice breaking up, missing the notes, cracking, and I love every second of it. A true original.

Shatteringly brilliant

Missing Children sets the stage, Another Radio Song and Last Love Song burn it down. Still love it four years on.

Do not download this EP if...

...you have the deluxe version of Black Sheep Boy. The songs are the same as the second half.

Great Introduction to Okkervil

Phonograph

Prior to getting this EP, I had never heard anything by the band. I had only read reviews and the such. Anyway, I am pumped about this EP and band. Not a big fan of the small instrumental interludes but the songs, the songs are amazing. Lots of emotion, interesting arrangements, all good. I highly recommend for first timers, specifically "Another Radio Song" - also, they are awesome live. Saw them at Lolla - great.

4 is a magic number

I'm a huge fan of Okkervil River's other releases, but there is something entirely magic about "Black Sheep Boy #4." This whole EP is worth your downloads and then some.

Buy this album!

Bosman

I have had this album since they started selling it early on their last tour. And it's freakin amazing. If your a fan of theirs at all, buy this cd, and the LP to. If your a fan of music, buy this and the rest of their albums. Better than Arcade Fire, and with more music.

Interview: Okkervil River

By Hilary Hughes, Contributor

Memories of adolescence tend to be peppered with moments of mortification: Puberty, first kisses, monumental heartbreaks, awkward attempts at experimentation, initial encounters with real world vices and the last dwindling bits of innocence between the final days of grade school and the moment we move into our freshman dorms. Revisiting these milestones can be a painful endeavor, but for Will Sheff of Okkervil River, it proved inspiring. Their first record since 2011's I Am Very Far,… more »

36 Songs To Soothe the Pain

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Whether you're happily married or told Cupid to shove it a long time ago, we can all agree on one thing: to quote the one-and-only Nazareth, "Love hurts/ Love scars/ Love wounds/ And mars." Or something. That's why we went ahead and compiled a list of 36 Songs To Soothe the Pain, from the bloodletting confessionals of Neko Case, Bright Eyes and Sunny Day Real Estate to the melancholic melodies of Sigur Rós, the Shangri-Las… more »

Six Degrees of The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds

By Rachael Maddux, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

Interview: Okkervil River’s Will Sheff

By Amanda Petrusich, Contributor

There's no better anchor for Okkervil River's brawny, brainy art-rock than the band's hyper-articulate frontman, Will Sheff: His vocals rush and recede, swell and shrink, changing every few bars to better suit the stories he tells. eMusic's Amanda Petrusich spoke with Sheff — fresh off a week of doctor-ordered voice-rest — about ditching the concept album, living in New York, keeping quiet and pursuing "a bigness that's not polite." I'm glad to hear that you're able to… more »
