Okkervil River released their seventh full-length album The Silver Gymnasium back in August, and in celebration, we ranked their albums from worst to best. Now, frontman Will Sheff is heading a campaign to create a short film based on the single “Down Down The Deep River” that will be partially funded via Kickstarter. The film will be based on Sheff’s experience growing up in rural New Hampshire during the 1980s, and it will be a tribute to the sci-fi books and films that defined his childhood. Although the project is already underway, the Kickstarter page is asking for $25,000 to complete it. As a thank-you gift for supporters, Sheff announced a couple of retro prizes:

When the Atlanta rap trio Migos recorded their frenetic breakout mixtape YRN, they sounded like the insanely hungry, insanely talented, just plain insane young hip-hop prospects they were. They’re not exactly household names now, but they rode that tape to a certain level of fame and fortune, and from the sounds of the singles they’ve leaked so far from YRN2, the fortune side of things is on their mind along with the paranoia that tends to follow. “Ran Up The Money” and “Brokanese” found Migos exhibiting progressively increased antagonism toward those who can’t match their inflated bank accounts, and this latest single continues that trajectory. “Jealousy” is boilerplate more-money-more-problems rap, complete with a Biggie shout-out and a downright ominous synth-string beat from Murda. But as usual, those typical rap topics are refracted through the lens of that unmistakably elastic Migos cadence. Download it below, and watch your back.
A lot has happened in Mutual Benefit’s world since we first posted about “Advanced Falconry” back in July. We big-upped breakthrough album Love’s Crushing Diamond and the group’s CMJ showcase, then we named Jordan Lee’s project a Band To Watch. (I also compared him to Sufjan because, yeah, there’s a slight resemblance.) After all that, let’s return to the gorgeous sprawl that started it all, which now has a video courtesy of the production collective BANGS. Director Allie Avital Tsypin’s clip finds a placid family photo session going slightly awry. Watch below.
