Okkervil River - Lost Coastlines (2008)
This was my record of the year in 2008. It just blew me away when I first heard it, I just had to play it over and over again, especially the first half. I just had to tell everybody about it and it got so bad that nobody would listen to it and when it came on, there was always a communal aah! naw!....what had I done? I now take a more subtle approach and now ask 'can you listen to this for me, as I would appreciate your valuable input'.
I just love the lyrics, lost coastlines and no maps and things, I love all that and that second singer (you will know what I mean) just does it to me.
I still think its a great song, so there!
They have a new album out at the moment and I am hoping to find my way there very soon. I hope there will be lights on the horizon and a safe place in the harbour.
