MP3: Okkervil River - "Your Past Life As A Blast"

Okkervil River I Am Very Far

Austin's own indie folk rockers Okkervil River have been having a big year in 2011, garnering respect and admiration in some places for their latest and sixth LP, I Am Very Far, dropping by at Jimmy Fallon to play lead single “Wake and Be Fine” accompanied by The Roots, and just ending a North American tour with prog rockers Titus Andronicus.

The band, lead by singer/songwriter Will Sheff, continue to promote their new record, releasing album highlight “Your Past Life As A Blast” as a 7” single, and giving it away for free to anyone who'd like to hear it. The single will be backed with previously unheard “Gold Faces,” and is out now via Jagjaguwar in the States; drops September 5th in the U.K.
