With over 260,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, Okkervil River isn’t exactly underground, but they have maintained an authentic (majority) acoustic sound throughout their extensive discography dating back to 2002 with Don’t Fall In Love With Everyone You See (according to their Soundcloud). This six member band’s songwriting skill shines through on each album and single they release. Albums I recommend are Don’t Fall In Love With Everyone You See, The Stand Ins, and The Silver Gymnasium. It’s a good thing they have such an extensive discography because you will only want more of them after listening to one of their albums.
