David Vandervelde Covers Okkervil River

Chapter 2 of The Stand-Ins Sessions — Okkervil River’s publicity project inviting friends to cover their great new album — comes courtesy of David Vandervelde (whose own work we just revisited the other day). As the Will Sheff & A.C. Newman take on “Lost Coastlines” suggested, this is going to unfold sequentially, and so today’s offering is the second proper song from the new album, “Singer Songwriter.” Warning: Will doesn’t contribute to this one, and neither does anyone with working knowledge of light metering.

Miss the band, but David hits it right and it’s poetic having “Singer Songwriter” come from a singer songwriter. The Stand-Ins is out 9/9 via Jagjaguwar, and David’s Waiting For The Sunrise is out via Secretly Canadian.
