When Okkervil River released their breakthrough "Black Sheep Boy" in 2005, Uncut wrote that “Sheff’s novelistic lyrics and the dexterous blend of country, folk and nervy indie-rock suggest a band approaching the peak of their powers.”
A New York Times piece on their 2007 follow-up "The Stage Names" (and its companion album "The Stand Ins" echoed, “Sheff writes like a novelist,” and Pitchfork called him, “One of the best lyric-writers in indie rock.”
Titus Andronicus is a rock and roll band from Glen Rock. There are four people in the band. Titus Andronicus take their name from a minor Shakespearean tragedy, not, as many people believe, from some sort of killer robot from the future. Titus Andronicus formed in the spring of 2005.
