Album Review: Okkervil River - The Silver Gymnasium

Album Review: Okkervil River - The Silver Gymnasium

"...the band is guiding the way with bright and colourful tunes; Cully Symington’s drums are the best Okkervil River have ever had, stomping, shuffling or sauntering through songs; synths embellish the picture; organs burble and wheeze; guitars both warmly buzz and frenetically crackle; the piano adorns the outskirts; and there are show-stealing horns emphatically punching their way into the picture on several songs."

One of my favourite bands Okkervil River just put out their 7th album The Silver Gymnasium; my review's over at Beats Per Minute
