Our episode of From the Basement (also featuring Foster the People) is live now and available to stream. It was really an honor to work in Nigel Godrich’s studio, and we’re proud of how it turned out.
Part 1 features Pushing the River and Breaking the Yearlings (at 11 minutes in); Part 2 is You as You Were and Insolence (at 6 minutes in). Unfortunately it appears that they only allow this to be streamed from the US.
In other news: as of today, we have only two US shows left this year. Europe, we’re coming for you next.
Getting new band stickers still makes me as excited as it did when I was 15. (JM) ... See MoreSee Less
The last 3 nights (and tonight) I've been guesting w/old band mates from Okkervil River, playing the "Black Sheep Boy" record (from 12 long years ago) in DC and NYC. It's been a real pleasure, and a trip down memory lane. Thanks to all of the Okkervils for treating me like family. (JM) ... See MoreSee Less

Cameron RasmussonMan, I'd love to see that show. Better yet, how about an Okkervil River-Shearwater co-headline show at a venue within three hours of me? Hey, a guy can always dream.1 week ago · 9

Chris WheelerI second Cameron's suggestion of a joint Okkervil/Shearwater show. Don't even know how many years I've dreamt of that.1 week ago · 3
Lee EinhornSaw you guys on Saturday night in NYC...loved your enthusiasm and joy in the performance, and your harmonies and vocals give the performance depth that it would have lacked without you. Thanks!1 week ago · 1

Alan BeveridgeI first saw Shearwater 5 years or so ago at The Gorge in Washington at the big festival there. I thought you were amazing, having never heard you before. After looking into the band I then found Okkervil River...I've since seen both bands many times, always fantastic. I have wished to see you all play together, so even though I didn't get to see it, I'm so glad it happened. I'll be watching Will at The Doug Fir in Portland in a couple of weeks..you should come Jonathan..😀7 days ago
