New Okkervil River video

"Our Life is Not a Movie Or Maybe"

I admit this is my first time seeing what these guys look like. In my head I had pictured lead singer Will Sheff looking more like drummer Travis Nelsen. That is to say shaggy and bearded. At any rate, here's the new vid, not horribly exciting but such a great song. (PS- I'm pretty sure it's /Ahk-ervil/ and not /Oak-ervil/.) They played Letterman last night but it's not up on YouTube yet.

"The Stage Names" is their fine, fine new album. I love it all except for the Beach Boys "tribute", as they do a sorta-their-own take on Sloop John B.
