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.”
