Over the years, Okkervil River has cycled through various lineups, but singer-songwriter Will Sheff has remained the one constant voice, an idiosyncratic storyteller infusing soft-rock melodies with darkness and triumph. On the Austin-based band’s ninth full-length, In the Rainbow Rain, Sheff again shines a flashlight through a downpour. The album opens with “Famous Tracheotomies,” a ditty that catalogues celebrity tracheotomies as a means of dissecting Sheff’s own tracheotomy as an infant. The song is delivered like quirky trivia over Don Henley synths, adding sweetness and depth to heavy contemplation.
