Okkervil River are rounding out their banner 2011 with another release to follow up their May full-length I Am Very Far: this one, though, is something a little different, a five-track covers EP, Golden Opportunities 2.

The band take their atmospheric harmonies, rhythmic bent, and updated traditional instrumentation – all those violins and slide guitars! – to a varied selection of five covers of Americana and folk greats. We particularly love their appropriately languid, dreamy take on Ted Lucas’ “It Is So Nice To Get Stoned,” a song that sounds like its title, and their version of American traditional “Dry Bones.”

Rebel Heart pounds out the case for her legacy. But too many tracks obscure what could have been a solid comeback attempt.
