Kevin is gone for a couple of weeks, and since he’s overseas without regular Internet access, we’ll communicate much less than usual when he’s on the road. I’ve decided to make a mixtape for him while he’s gone, song by song, on this blog. Each day I’ll post a new tune for him, along with some image from home that should seem familiar. Long love note, I guess. Anyway, you’ll enjoy it too – a new song each day from my archives (and newish pile). Today, the first day of his absence, I’m sharing my favorite tune from the new Okkervil River record, which came out yesterday on Jagjaguwar.
