Okkervil River

If you thought Texas’ finest exports only come in cowboy boots, think again. Austin seven-piece Okkervil River are dropping some delicious indie-folk onto Glasgow this month, following the release of their fifth album The Stand Ins. With spectacular use of mandolins, accordions and all manner of folksy treats to compliment the deep warbling of front man Will Sheff, this is nu-folk rock best seen live.
