OKKERVIL RIVER’s Daytrotter session up now

OKKERVIL RIVER’s new Daytrotter session is now up here

For their latest session, the band dusts off some chestnuts, beginning with a full-band version of “April Anne”, originally from former the Mamas and the Papas member John Phillips’ out-of-print 1970 solo debut. Sheff’s stark, solo acoustic renderings of a song Carole King wrote for Dusty Springfield (“No Easy Way Down”) and a Jimmy Webb song once recorded by Nina Simone, among others (“Do What You Gotta Do”) put Sheff’s quavering vocals, the emotional centerpiece of 2007′s “The Stage Names”, in a more feminine light. The session closes with a “skiffle version” of the new album’s “You Can’t Hold the Hand of a Rock and Roll Man” backed by the full band, with Sheff comping on acoustic guitar and member Brian Cassidy trading his electric guitar for piano.
