#24 okkervil river – john allyn smith sails

last year, okkervil river released the stage names, which was one of my favorite albums of 2007. this september, the follow-up to that album the stand-ins will be out, and after the first couple of preview listens, i still feel it pales in comparison to its predecessor. i’ll definitely give it a chance to grow on me, but for the time being, here’s the awesome album closer from the stage names. i remember the first time i heard it when i nearly choked on my lunch hearing the beach boys’ pet sounds classic “sloop john b” creep its way into the rousing finale of this song.
