Will Sheff — known for leading the critically acclaimed indie-rock stalwarts Okkervil River across nine beloved albums — announces Nothing Special, his debut solo album set for release on October
Will Sheff is a densely literate songwriter of the highest degree. Like a good novelist, his songs reveal layers as they progress, adding intrigue and possibility to the plot and subtle nuance to the characterization, while weighty symbolism abounds throughout. The man also likes his hand-claps, as Sheff raucously urged and prodded the crowd to “throw their hands up” and clap along to the beats of some of the band’s best-known numbers
