By |

The Austin, Texas folk rock band Okkervil River recently came by the Rolling Stone office to play two songs – "Wake and Be Fine" from their latest album I Am Very Far and "In a Radio Song", a seldom-performed tune from their 2005 record Black Sheep Boy. After the set, frontman Will Sheff talked about discovering that Lou Reed was a fan of his music and how growing up in a small New Hampshire town influenced his songwriting.
