No Webcomic this week, because I'm unbelievably busy. Like actually. It's absurd.

Title: Wake and Be Fine
Artist: Okkervil River
Genre: Indie, Rock
Single: N/A
Album: I Am Very Far

Kenn's Comment: Not the first time Okkervil has been on the blog. I featured A Stone way back in the days. 

The video is kind of trippy, kind of being very. The song is awesome though. Okkervil River makes it's name on deep lyrics and awesome instrumentation. This album scored really well with the critics, averaging about 4~4.5 of 5 stars, which more or less is what their albums usually rank. They're awesome, but they're content with the amount of publicity they get. Recently read in an article about them in the paper, where the interviewer asked Will Sheff (band leader) about how he felt about Arcade Fire taking the Grammies. Can't remember exactly what he said, but it was something like "we used to get pretty frustrated, but now it's cool because it gives us the freedom of doing what we want." So yeah. Keep on trucking Okkervil!

Interesting fact: The words don't always match up with the lyrics.
