The week has started off awfully well for Austin, TX's Okkervil River. First, the band just got a Best Music Nod from Pitchfork Media. Tomorrow, they will of course release the record that was the subject of Pitchfork's praise, The Stage Names.
We'll have a review of The Stage Names up on the site in the next few days, but in the meantime check out a few MP3s at the top of the post. Or, if you want to listen to The Stage Names in its entirety, just check out the band's MySpace Page. There you'll find a stream of the album.
