Shearwater- Leviathan, Bound
Shearwater is the side project of Jonathan Meiburg and Will Sheff of Okkervil River. In Shearwater the songs are quieter and mostly piano-based, and Meiburg handles the vocals. The sound is completely different from OR, you would never know it was the same two guys at the helm. Meiburg is overeducated like Sheff with a master's in geography. He's a bird freak thus the name of the band.
This is from Shearwater's upcoming album Rook, to be released this June (and leaked well before, I guess I don't have to keep repeating that...)
