If you haven't had a chance to check out Okkervil River's new album I Am Very Far, then you should head over to their AP.net profile to stream it in its entirety. This was the first album to blow me away on first listen this year, and a month later, it's still one of my favourites of 2011, so I highly recommend checking it out. Will Sheff most certainly still knows how to create a flawless indie-rock and folk record, and his dark lyrics are extremely contagious. But go listen for yourself and let us know what you think.
