Amoeba Review

09/02/2013

Since the late '90s, Will Sheff has been traversing and re-mapping the landscape of his memory, through several acclaimed albums of spare, haunting, low-lit Americana. His latest attempt is his most explicit, musically returning to his hometown of Meriden, N.H. in great lyrical detail through one of his most affecting song cycles yet. Producer John Agnello is a perfect accomplice, having cut his teeth working on plenty of '80s radio rock before reinventing himself in the alternative era working with Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr. and the Walkmen. Here he brings an '80s-era Springsteen vibe, with vintage synths and sonics that recall the somber moments of Born In the U.S.A.. Despite the period detail and the retro sounds, this is a sturdy Okkervil River album, emotionally tough, searingly honest and ecstatically weary. Read More
