Lovestreams - "Shock Corridor"

Okkervil River frontman Will Sheff has a new project, one he’s been quietly working on for about a year. On his website, Sheff writes that he rented a room last year and that he’s been going there everyday to work on music from his new solo thing Lovestreams: “I decided to do a project there I’d wanted to do for years and years, which is to make an album by myself and for myself, an album that doesn’t owe anything to music I made before.” And today, we get to hear the first song from the project. It’s a broody synth-rock thing, and it’s called “Shock Corridor.” Hear it below.

Sheff says that he’ll be giving the songs away rather than selling them, so expect to hear more soon.

  1. Like the worn out vinyl sleeve of the cover. Been flipped through for years in the generic “L” slot. Needs an orange sticker with a 1- scrawled in marker on it, and maybe the logo of your favorite used record store.

  2. Will Sheff is the most underrated, overlooked songwriter. Seriously. Even though he is moderately successful, the big kid critics don’t seem to recognize him for what he is- one of the best lyricists alive, and one of the smartest dudes in music. That said, I don’t know how I feel about this. It’s cool that he’s able to turn around and do something so texturally different from Okkervil River, though.

    Pinko… don’t be so grumpy.
