New Roky Erickson

News filtered out a few months ago of a new Roky album backed by Okkervil River, a band from his native Austin, Texas. Today we can hear the first fruit of this union and thankfully its a winner. Pitchfork have posted an MP3 of a song “Goodbye Sweet Dreams” from the forthcoming album which will be called “True Love cast Out All Evil.” From the opening it’s vintage Erickson and the band play a wonderfully sinister off kilter beat with squalling guitars while his vocals which include references to Pentagrams are almost as good as they have ever been.
The album will come out in the UK on Chemikal Underground. Hopefully its all as good as this offering. Head on over to Pitchfork and grab a listen.
