Okkervil River / オッカヴィル・リヴァー - I Am Very Far / アイ・アム・ベリー・ファー

Label: Hostess Entertainment

アメリカ、テキサス州オースティンのインディ・ロック・バンド、オッカヴィル・リヴァーの約3年ぶりとなる6作目のオリジナル・アルバム。フロントマンの Will Sheff がプロデュース、Roky Erickson とのコラボレーション作品も収録。

Work on 'I am Very Far' started in early 2009, after a year spent on the music of others. Sheff contributed vocals to The New Pornographer's album 'Together,' wrote a song for Norah Jones' 'The Fall,' and helmed the Roky Erickson record 'True Love Cast Out All Evil,' for which his album notes received a GRAMMY nomination. Immediately upon wrapping up work and leaving Erickson's company, Sheff drove to his home state of New Hampshire for lengthy isolated writing sessions. "I wanted to go back home and re-start writing again, like I'd never written a song previously," he says, "and I wanted the music and lyrics to be both completely wedded together and a little bit beyond my control."
