[THEATRICAL FOLK ROCK] While there’s no denying Will Sheff’s pop-ward shift circa 2007 with The Stage Names, Okkervil River’s brainy frontman remains one of the most artistic folk musicians out there. Nothing in the Austin band’s résumé has quite equaled 2003’s Down the River of Golden Dreams. But Sheff has managed five enchanting records since, including fascinating partnerships with the likes of psych-rocker Roky Erickson and latest effort The Silver Gymnasium, a concept album set in Sheff’s hometown of Meriden, N.H. Refreshingly, Okkervil River’s newest material offers much of the same pleading, at-times theatrical, heart-on-its-sleeve folk rock that made the band first resonate over a decade ago.
