Okkervil River write dreamy songs with slumber-blurred stories and play them with a drifting, somnambulant gait. The band- named for a river outside St. Petersburg, Russia- filled last year's eye-opening Down the River of Golden Dreams with gentle ballads about beds and war criminals and forgiveness, but the songs on their follow-up EP, Sleep and Wake Up Songs, are more brittle and fragile, like a light sleeper's snooze. The EP condenses the album's best qualities and discards most of its weaknesses, and its brevity makes it all the more emotionally forceful. Plumbing the disappointment of unrealized dreams, these songs are bleak and often desperate. They traffic in deliberately nebulous narratives- unnamed characters, unspecified relationships, vague actions, undisclosed emotions- anchored by concrete details. The result is a dreamlike atmosphere, simultaneously blurred and lucid.

Okkervil River's aptly titled Sleep and Wake-Up Songs is a five-song primer for the forthcoming full-length Black Sheep Boy. Led by the pained tenor of Shearwater frontman Will Sheff, the Lone Star State sextet mines the same vein of Americana as the Scud Mountain Boys and Will Oldham, focusing on the many guises of heartache with sharp lyrical imagery and chamber pop nuances. Sheff's protagonists are in a perpetual state of yearning

Sleep and Wake-Up Songs is now being rereleased for Record Store Day, it's first time pressed ever on vinyl. Including a demo of the EP track "You're Untied Again" and the never before released song "Knocking Myself Out," the EP reveals Okkervil River in-between the monumental albums Down The River of Golden Dreams and Black Sheep Boy. Band leader Will Sheff looked back to this EP, remarking, "I can hear in it somebody who is actually getting comfortable with singing, with playing the guitar, with letting music happen naturally. The album opens with "A Favor" which is an instant Okkervil River classic. The album then slows down, but picks up again on the closing track "No Hidden Track".
