Okkervil River's Golden Opportunities 2 comes with the opportunity for free music

For those of us in the 99%, here’s something to be thankful for: Okkervil River has just released the follow-up to the 2007 mixtape, Golden Opportunities, for — you guessed it — FREE. And let’s face it, when’s the last time you got something legal and free? Just as the previous mixtape did, this one finds the band covering some songs by a bunch of people you can pretend to have heard of if you want to impress some hardcore music heads: Ted Lucas, Jim Sullivan, David McComb, and Bill Fay. Once you’ve committed those names to memory, go ahead and research them so you can convincingly tell your hipper-than-thou friends the twisted musicians’ tales.

Golden Opportunities 2 was recorded live to two-track tape in a day while on break from touring for their not-free album I Am Very Far (TMT Review) on Jagjaguwar. Find both Mp3 and lossless versions of the album at Okkervil River’s site.

Golden Opportunities 2:

01. It Is So Nice to Get Stoned (Ted Lucas)
02. U.F.O. (Jim Sullivan)
03. One Soul Less on Your Fiery List (David McComb)
04. Plan D (Bill Fay)
05. Dry Bones (Traditional)
