Boomkat Product Review:
*LIMITED DOUBLE DISC EDITION* Back in the 60's "folk-pop master" Tim Hardin wrote a song called 'Black Sheep Boy' in which he lamented his families treatment of him as an outcast just cos he loved to wander, singing "I'm the families unowned boy, envied with the golden hair". How do I know all this? Well Texas band Okkervil River have taken that song as a starting point (including a very Ben Gibbard-esque opening cover) then got busy creating a story which spirals outwards in a concept that isn't half as annoying as it may sound. Whilst their top half may suggest a Scott Walker predilection, from waist down they are quite as happy kicking the door down with some Wheat ('Black') or Devendra ('A Stone'). A really BIG sounding record, 'Black Sheep Boy' could well have a great deal of mainstream success if enough people got chance to be beguiled by it's pop-hook heavy compositions and sing-a-long delights. Whilst this is unlikely to happen, it means the rest of us can delight in a proper hidden gem that manages to take in Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen and Death Cab For Cutie without seemingly breaking sweat. "I ain't trying to be no good... I'm happy".
