Following this year’s underrated I Am Very Far, Okkervil River delivered a holiday gift to their fans today in the form of a sequel to 2007’s free Golden Opportunities mixtape. Comprised of 5 obscure covers, the new EP, called Golden Opportunites 2, is available for download on the Austin band’s website. The songs were recorded entirely live in one day at Austin studio Premium Recording. Tracks:
1. It is So Nice to Get Stoned (by Ted Lucas)
2. U.F.O. (by Jim Sullivan)
3. One Soul Less On Your Fiery List (by David McComb)
4. Plan D (by Bill Fay)
5. Dry Bones (American Traditional)
Check out “U.F.O.” by LA singer-songwriter Jim Sullivan, who apparently disappeared in the New Mexico desert in 1975.
