Detective Sheff's Cinematic Crime Scene
  • FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 2007

  • Posted by:



The first video to emerge from Okkervil River’s superb indie noir record The Staged Names (Jagjaguwar) is a befitting piece of film, embracing the same cinematic, storytelling touch Will Sheff has been dressing the band’s music up in over all these years. A motel jam session in the middle of a crime scene, “Our Life is Not a Movie or Maybe” was directed by Margaret Brown, who received accolade from the likes of The New York Times for Be Here To Love Me, a documentary on country folk singer Townes Van Zandt, released back in ’05. - David Pitz


The band is also currently out on the road in support of The Staged Names.
