New Roky Erickson

After 14 long years, the brilliantly off the wall Austin, TX artist Roky Erickson is back with a fantastic album recorded with critic darlings, Okkervil River. It's very early yet, but I don't see how this won't be on my best of 2010 list. I just can't stop playing it. It's hard to even describe the sound, but if you think you know the "Roky" sound, the music and lyrics will blow you away. If you have no expectations or don't know Roky, prepare to have a new favorite record and artist.

Below is a taste, and you can listen to the whole thing here until April 26.
