the online edition has a picture next to the story, featuring what looks like a moose without antlers (do those exist?) plus two guys with hard hats in the background. I know none of these are in TLW, so maybe Okkervil River have a deer in their mids? ah wait, it might be an advertisement for Shell...

anyways, with such a recommendation I may have to check out Okkervil River...

LONG WINTERS and OKKERVIL RIVER Every time I've listened to the electro-rock rave-up "Dance Macabre" by the Faint over the last two years, I've regretted not listing it in my top 10 in 2001. I wonder if, as I continue to listen nonstop to "When I Pretend to Fall" (Barsuk) by the Seattle band the Long Winters and "Down the River of Golden Dreams" (Jagjaguwar) by the Austin, Tex., band Okkervil River, I will not regret omitting those discs from last year's list. Both are smart, catchy, near-perfect indie-rock records. Long Winters come on crisp, clean and melodic (especially on the fantastic "Blue Diamonds" and "Cinnamon") while Okkervil River prefers a more warbly, orchestrated approach (as on the beautiful, crescendoing "It Ends With a Fall"). -- Neil Strauss
