New Roky Erickson, "Goodbye Sweet Dreams"
In more news indirectly involving Okkervil River, the 13th Floor Elevators' legendary frontman Roky Erickson is returning with new material this year. The troubled, and oft-disturbed musician will release True Love Cast Out All Evil as his first collection of new music in 14 years. His backing band? Fellow Austinites Okkervil River. Frontman Will Sheff also produced the record, which promises to be interesting at the least, and phenomenal in a best-case scenario. You can check out the seemingly triumphant comeback track, "Goodbye Sweet Dreams" below. And be on the lookout for True Love Cast Out All Evil via Anti- on April 20.
