Roky Erickson with Okkervil River
True Love Cast Out All Evil - ANTI-
FILTER Grade: 84%

Roky Erickson with Okkervil River

The sounds that break Roky Erickson’s 14-year silence as a solo performer are the hiss and crackle of a prison reel-to-reel followed by a few shaky chords and Erickson’s lyrical devotion to God. Culled from songs written throughout his 45-year career and backed by fellow Austinites Okkervil River, True Love is at times haunting and ecstatic, memorializing Erickson’s long history while swaggering into a shaggy kind of hope. MARTY GARNER
