Okkervil River gives away Golden Opportunities 2 EP

It's the time of year for giving, and it looks as though at least indie-rock Santa is looking out for us. The nugget of gold stuck in your stocking is in the form of a new offering from Austin heavy hitters Okkervil River.  It is a five song EP of covers titled Golden Opportunities 2, which obviously is the follow-up to their "mixtape" of covers from 2007. The original was a free downloadable gift to their fans, so keeping with the tradition the new EP is up on their website right now. The songs were recorded live to two-track here in the ole live music capital of the world and are filled with Okkervil goodness. Don't miss this chance to grab some new tunes from one the most consistently great indie bands of the last couple years.

Golden Opportunities 2 comes to us on the heals of Okkervil River's sensational full-length I Am Very Far released earlier this year. From that album the band has released two different videos for the track "Your Past Life As A Blast." Below are both.
