"On Tour With Zykos" - Zykos
"Pop Lie" - Bird of Youth
These are two more covers from the series Okkervil River is putting together to promote the upcoming release of The Stand Ins. “Pop Lie” is being performed by Bird Of Youth, and “On Tour With Zykos” is done by, um, Zykos - who I wasn’t even aware weren’t fictional….
And here’s tour buddies Wilco & Fleet Foxes doing a sublime version of “I Shall Be Released”. My favorite band of the past decade singing with 2008’s “Rookies of the Year” - nice combo.
