Video: Okkervil River "Our Life is not a Movie or Maybe" on Conan

Here, Will Sheff and his musical compatriots put in a version of the lead song off The Stage Names every bit as rousing and riveting as the recorded version. "Epic" is a hard word to throw around in the rock and roll world anymore, since "mock" has been stamped so indelibly in front of it due to the shenanigans of joke bands like Spinal Tap, Tenacious D, and Flight of the Conchords. But it definitely fits here. Check out how pumped Conan gets from the song. Dude is psyched!

That song was so repetitive, in the bad way.


How is it badly repetitive? It cycles back through its melody a lot, but what typical rock song doesn't? What makes it work is how Sheff keeps changing up the lyrics, and how the intensity ramps up, plummets, and then ramps back up again. This is one of the best songs of the year in my book.
