    In an attempt to seek out some of their quieter music making desires, original members of Okkervil River, Jonathan Meiburg and Will Sheff collaborated on a side project called Shearwater back in 2001. The duos effort wasn't in vain, as their side project morphed into a popular indie band with eight albums under their belt (even with Will Sheff's departure). The eighth album Animal Joy, which came out 2/14, proves how they're not only able to successfully able to break away from a set genre, but admirably progress within a different genre (on a new label).
